USA  – Greenhouse, setting the fish tank, December 15, 2018

“Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders labor in vain.” (Psalms 127:1) Many thanks to the Harvest Kids, from the youngest to the oldest, for working in the cold weather to do some more work on the greenhouse. Also, thanks to Linda for bringing us lunch and hot chocolate. We finished painting the tops of the PVC arches, bracing the side walls, preparing the place for the fish tank and trenching the fish tank drain line. Fred got his gang together and set the fish tank and Wayne and David got it leveled. The fish tank will be the source of the water for the garden portion of the aquaphonics project. Half of the greenhouse will be used to accommodate the aquaphonics and the other half will be used as a typical soil garden for planting and establishing “starts” that will be transplanted to the outside garden for continued growing and eventual harvesting. The Lord will provide older “Harvest Kids” that know how to prepare these vegetables and fruits for eating: fresh, boiled, steamed or baked; canned or pickled, sliced or diced – all healthy and yummy to the tummy. Our next phase is to frame the end walls.

“The word of the Lord came to me: ‘Son of man, what is this proverb you have in the land of Israel:

‘The days go by and every vision comes to nothing?’ Say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am going to put an end to this proverb, and they will no longer quote it in Israel.’ Say to them, ‘The days are near when every vision will be fulfilled. For there will be no more false visions or flattering divinations among the people of Israel. But I the Lord will speak what I will, and it shall be fulfilled without delay. For in your days, you rebellious house, I will fulfill whatever I say, declares the Sovereign Lord.’ The word of the Lord came to me: ‘The vision he sees is for many years from now, and he prophesies about the distant future.’ Therefore say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: None of My words will be delayed any longer; whatever I say will be fulfilled, declares the Sovereign Lord.” (Ezekiel 12:21-28)
