After a very fine downpour a week ago, we’ve seen very little rain since. Some days appear promising with regard to moisture, as in today’s photo, but then nothing comes of it. In any case, we keep praying for more rain.
We continue indoor and outdoor projects to beautify our grounds. Our fairly recently planted “Veritas Apple Orchard” and “Mary’s Berry Patch” have now been thoroughly weeded and show promise of bearing fruit eventually.
Some of our storage places have been better organized and “weeded out” as well. In addition, fallen branches from Scrub Oak trees on our property have been removed.
Maintenance is an ongoing endeavor and fortunately we have “monk power” and generous guests to tackle various and sundry projects each morning during our work period, Monday through Saturday, from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm.
We keep all our families, friends, benefactors and oblates in our prayers and are grateful for yours.
Abbot Christian and the monks
