You know we certainly haven't covered it all. But let's just have a word of prayer that the Lord will help us to maximize the stime. Dear Heavenly Father we thank you for blessing today. And I think you for each person that's here who stuck with it. Lord I just pray that you'll be close to them and encourage them and bless their efforts. Guide them give them wisdom and bless us as we try to wrap things up here in Jesus' name we pray. Amen. So this last session is just kind of where do we go from here. And I want to just a few minutes. To to go over some things that they may not have gone over and. It we've talked about these three books. Highly this would be my list. Well. Yeah. The list of recommended reading but there's this. This market farming success is a great great place to start. You know it's written by be added or of growing for market magazine. Just kind of a good. Good starting point for all the things you need to be thinking about when you're thinking of starting a market gardener market farm. So I recommend that for sure. This one is is another Elliot Coleman book. He is the expert on winter growing he's doing it in Maine. In unheated hoop houses. So you can do it wherever you are you know I don't you know. North or South Dakota. That. That's pretty tough. I think that's harder than Maine. But anyway. If you're thinking at all about winter growing. Don't even start without reading this book. This is is definitely the handbook for winter growing. I would say oh I'm sorry. It's on your resource. Thing so again. If you've got all these. It's all there. The winter harvest handbook. Excellent information beautiful pictures the pictures are amazing. This is another one that I haven't talked about at all but this is really an excellent. Reference work. Sustain a bull market gardening this is the lady Pam dolling in Virginia. So that gives you an idea. Very in-depth on on different crops. You know. I mean she has a chapter has a tremendous amount of information on. You know bras to kids your spring bras because in your fall bras and planting dates and. It's really I mean you can see it's a big book. But an excellent reference that you can turn to for for information on specific crops. Got some catalogs that we use. Talk about those that this is the one I really want to plug. This is growing for market magazine. Linda's in ski is the editor and she has sent us magazines every year for the conference I haven't put him out with the free stuff over there because I want to give you all first opportunity at these. Because this is specifically geared for market gardening. You know I think it's. I think it's thirty six dollars a year for ten issues. And you know if you're on a budget you may be thinking I can't afford it I would tell you you can't afford not to have this magazine. Because I could tell you story after story of. Tips that I've gotten from this because this is all written by farmers. These are people in the trenches doing it. And you know every magazine. I mean there are some. There are some issues that come out and it's like well I didn't. I didn't gain a money making tip for that but when you do and this is an excellent article I'm so glad this is actually an old one she said she kind of was one and get rid of some of the old magazines This is March two thousand and fourteen. But the cover article is Jay EMS article on the six best tools for the market garden. So you have it now you can have it. Two of those are right here at our. Well actually three of them. Because the rotary power herro is also here so we've tried to provide you with the best here. Growing for market. It's a excellent resource I can't emphasize that I'm the I. Is just a mystery to me why more people don't buy it. But I keep pushing it. And hopefully you'll be ones that take me seriously. The only other thing I want to say before I'm going to ask some others to speak. Here is. And I think we've touched on this. But you know how how are you going to learn what you need to know. You know you can either. Read books. Which is a great place to start. Read books and learn everything you can from others experience. Or you can just jump into it. Head first and sink or swim. You know that's what we did although I did as much research as I could in those days. You can go to school. Go to university and take agriculture to me that's that's the worst way to learn. You'd think I'm a teacher Did you know that I'm I'm a teacher by profession. But I'm not afraid to point out. Weaknesses in our educational system. The best way in my opinion is to learn from people who are doing it. And course. I know not all of you have the luxury of taking six months or a year or two to go work on somebodies farm. But that. In my opinion and as I said earlier today. The farmers that I have seen. Hit the ground running. Successfully are those who have spent multiple years. Interning or apprenticing on other farms. So I thought I'd let two of our apprentices from this year come up and just share. Briefly And this isn't about our farm this is just about an apprenticeship experience. Briefly what they learned. Are some of what they learned hopefully. I'm a little scared about this. I hope they have something to say. And then we'll kind of. And with the pearly testimony of their first year. Market Garden. And we might have a little time for some questions and answers after that. But you know. I just challenge you and encourage you read all you can. From those who've gone before. And then visit farms even if it's for the day. You know Mrs Perley came. What was it for two days or and was that helpful. How much can you learn in two days I don't know but you can. You know you're just immersing yourself in it you're. It's empowering to even if. If you don't do it all right. You know you can still do. I went to learn from a C.S.. My wife mentioned. The biggest say in our area. You know. I was thinking about starting a C.S.. And so I just called them up and said Can I spend the day with you. And it was very empowering. Their farm was a wreck. And that's not all their fault because they had had to move through other farm this was first year on rented land were taller than the plants. They use plastic though that was the only thing that saved them. But you know. Out of this patch they were they were producing these amazing boxes. And for me who has a perfectionistic streak. You know I want to do it all perfect it was like wow. Even if it doesn't look like Coleman's farm. I can still produce a work in progress. You know it's like our characters. There are not the perfect picture perfect form you want him to be right. But it's a work in progress towards working with us. So get exposure get the experience. Talk to farmers out there doing it. And the Lord will bless your efforts. OK Here's Allison and you know it was something that really meant a lot to us is just a balanced education and how important that is. You can go to school. You can learn. Out of books. But if you don't get your hands on it not necessarily will you find it as enjoyable as you thought it would be so that was very meaningful to both of us. I remember one instance. Talking to Uncle John. About. I don't exactly remember what it was and I had a question about it and he said well you know. Do you have any other questions and I said. I don't but I feel like I should. Because I have questions and I can learn more. And just. How do I say this is just his answer to me saying Well if you ask me questions then I can direct you. It was more of not so much. Wanting to fixate sir in objects in my mind. But helping helping us to broaden our own understanding. That would be beneficial to us personally because everybody learns differently. And how important that was you know it definitely was very good for both of us. We leave also discussed the two of us about apprenticeship. Versus college courses. And I know that was touched on earlier today but again having that. Hands on experience before the books. Only makes my interest. Our interest. Deep in to be in the book. So that was huge. Well and aspect that I really appreciated. Is with agriculture comes here in the soil almost live five dollars time. And for me. The closest to the soil. Just drew me closer to Christ in seeing how just the different minerals in the soil and how it has helped. The See you ever see being just develop and grow into what it was meant to be. And just have reminded me of the closeness that I felt there is just encouraged me and just watching it just. I knew that I had that's what I needed in order to grow I needed the closeness the plight of the soil. I knew that with Christ. And also for me. I. Hands on is definitely easier for me learn. Compared to book work and. I definitely felt that that was one of the most six months. I learned the most that I have learned. I think in all of my education. And it was just a wonderful experience. Another thing to touch on was responsibility and character growth. That was that was very huge. Just having each of us have our own area that we maintained. We had each of us had our own who passes. And they're the movable ones so you had a certain a certain plot that was four years take care of. And basically an all in all areas and. That was really huge because that's how it would be if we had our farmers are gardeners and being able to experience what it's really like where you don't always have the time to make it perfect. And also tending to be a perfectionistic person that really really grew me. Being thorough is a virtue. But P.D. can sometimes be more important. And you know that that was huge just seeing how important that was it was very huge and it connects with fidelity in the smallest things. Something about farming is the littlest things. Always come out with blaring result. He can do something in the slipshod manner without realising it later on and feeling the feeling the pain later. Also just the Harding. Of character. That. That was huge Also in any learning. Setting. You're going to find things about yourself that you may not exactly. Appreciate and as well as other people. And so learning to get along. Learning to accept what is not beautiful in you. And being willing to ignore legit. The Lord to continue to work in you. It's kind of like when we. We see to we have our little transplants and they start. And you keep them. Sheltered in a greenhouse to grow. And they get you know. Strong enough to tolerate a little bit. He said I'm outside their they harden and that's how kind of was for us. You. We were heartened by the at times inconvenient at times. You know. Frustration. And yet. Having that experience only makes us better for who we are. And just really finding that even inconvenience. Is really our friend sometimes. In this completely. All consuming. World of convenience. That it. Thank you girls to tell you we had a great group of apprentices and I just wanted to say. I was so proud of them. Because you know. We seem like we had a lot of rain this summer and. I can remember some days where they got. So two or three times. You know I mean the rain comes and goes and they're out there harvesting and. You know a little rain that's kind of fun but when you get soaked to the skin and it's just dripping. But not a word of complaint. You know they go get changed get dried up and tear it would come again and. So those kind of things. You know. It is good for character development and. Praise God that He gives us the opportunities to have that character development. OK let's hear from the pearly is now. Do you want. Thank you John. Appreciated that testimony today is just the oh there they are the I can. I can agree with the character development. One hundred percent. About gardening. I'm Fred. My wife Lilya. We come from very different backgrounds. I'm from Florida originally grew up there gardening and sandy soil. So I don't learn really quick how to I'm in the soil have any little slower to before. So you know it just gets kind of a losing battle right. And the water is just terrible there. And so I learn how to compost there the very young age. And I didn't know it but later on I'd have a passion for gardening. Kind of hated it back then because my dad said if you don't work you don't see so. He was a military man so he really pushed gardening. But I learned some valuable lessons for the future. My wife. She's from Russia. So she had a different back to ground working in beautiful soil. Very thick top soil their long growing days. And when we got married we decided to move out into the country and grow our own food and raise her kids our was clean air. And that's Matthew there at the computer and Ruben. There is our middle boy in our youngest little girl was Adelina. Matthew go ahead and. We're going to go through. If you can put on a slide we just want to show you some slides here and. Right now we live in north central Arkansas long. So everybody has to have homo beginnings and this is our little encampment on our property. Had forty acres maybe only two acres for tillage a bull to little ball if you want to call it. And we we camped on on the property. For several months while we were building. Basically a workshop and then a little room to stay and go ahead and. And we lived in a tent. Hauled our water. This is our very first garden is a little fifty by fifty. Plot we had some guy come in and just bill actually we bulldoze did a little bit. Our grapevines here. Since we cleared it the weeds came up all around. Never been there. But this is our. This is where we were this is our workshop right here fifty by fifty were we just learned. We didn't know a whole lot about composting we didn't know about mulching things go ahead and slip the. But we did. I was a Carper nurse. I kind of learned had experience building some structures to keep deer out. And this is how we. Yesterday to from our property there. Go ahead and trellises just nailed together in bailing wire for some melons here and go ahead and flip another one. This is another trials for some Armenian cucumbers. Go ahead. And we just planted peppers and. And some watermelon up there. You know it's not very mulched. We were just beginning. And you can to the most important things just to get out there. And with what knowledge you have and what you read and what you've heard and we appreciate. Johnny really inspired us last year and his family and all the speakers. We're inspired to move forward. But again this is humble beginnings go ahead and. There are some radishes My daughter has Go ahead. This is from that watermelon patch. It really inspires the children to go forward when they get something like this. Armenian cucumber their movements holding. And we've learned a little bit about mulch. This is from him. We found out there is a mushroom. Factory that grew you know in these nice to talking mushrooms Well you know we like mushrooms but we're more interested in the stuff that they are growing in now wasn't manure it was barley with millet with some other materials that they put in as our Gannett so we let it we got the rotted stuff loaded it up for five dollars. So that's part of learning to begin from scratch is just put together whatever you can file look around for your natural resources again. Use what you have on hand. And the knowledge that you've learned meetings like the. And just do it. Go ahead. And we we put the stuff here we made some new beds. See these rock piles over here and some along in here they all came from right here. We dug down about a foot and pulled back layers of this rock. And there's worms all through here. And we just went ahead and built out up for the following year kind of let it set a little bit and let the worms really work in there. And boy they really love that stuff. And we planted go ahead I think the planet garlic. As a Reuben they're putting some garlic in there from the following year that we preserved. Go ahead. And then we rotated it was some winters. Squash for butternut squash an acorn squash for our C.S.A. as it were given out now and punk. You know my daughter said there's punkins up here somewhere. Go ahead. If you notice too we learned some structures like a terror scene with cedar logs. Again here. Use what you have to keep from erosion. Garlic plants. These are Russian garlic survived our winter without any covering from Bashkirian were my wife from Feel free to pick. Go ahead. And then we can we kind of if you're seeing a natural progression here we went from Summer Garden and said we're getting tired of fighting bugs. Organically we can we are. We don't use hardly any sprays and if it if it is it's going to be an organic type spray or we just pluck these things off. But then we started getting interested in fall gardening. We were inspired by John Gardner When we first came to Tennessee last year. He took us on a tour. There was a tour going on I don't know if you were there but I think your brother was there. One and we were just amazed at his high tunnels. And so we begin to create these little miniature high tunnels or Little who palaces. Kind of like caterpillars and outcomes these things here the well protected by by what we had to cover them go ahead. This was after a ice storm came through you can see the snow kind of crushed everything of these little teeny hoops that we had snow here we had to learn some spinach in their head another slide in Spanish surviving through the winter That's amazing isn't it. Lord really protected. And that's another thing I learned is to really rely on on God and Christ I've done a lot of kneeling in my garden and. Based on you know. Issues with my own character and. Remember we ran out of water for ten weeks or will pump. Got struck by lightning and. We had to haul water from a lake. Gallons after Jalen just to keep our garden surviving. And finally instead of praying for rain the Lord. Finally spoke to me and says pray for more strength to haul more water and. So I did and he gave me that strength and we survived to go ahead. And these are some of the cool loving crops that were beginning to get used to to learning how to farm. Cabbage go ahead and look you want to. This is something special. OK. After last year we attended. Like I said again we were very inspired but what we heard. And we heard there was grants. There are grants available for high tunnels. So we applied my wife had a dream to have one of these things. And what I see is more work for me. But what she saw is possibly a way to get us together as a family. And stay at home and have a business working together. Much like what. My brother John's talked about and so we prayed and prayed and. We asked the Lord. If it's possible if we get a grant for those that might be a real sign a step for the disses what we need to do and so that's what we did and we applied for granted. And sure enough. Thinkers five. In our county and. We were the ones that get that one Lord blessed us with like to add something because I'm a dental hygiene is by profession and. I'm still working part time and I was praying for the Lord to open the way so we could have family business stay home and. I was convicted. I have to a lot of meditation readings. During the frogs in the Bible that the Lloyd wanted to started this. I talked to my husband he was not completely convinced. So we came actually at that time we came to a dagger the first conference last year and was just the definite For me it was yes. This is the way. Walking in it. My husband still was. Well it's more work. We're not quite ready we're not there yet still living conditions the still work. Live in the workshop. So I've played to the Lord and I said lord. If you will provide as who've house. We apply for the grain of Ember. We never heard tales. Spring time yesterday. If that will mean that all these time from you. Yes. This is the way. We should go. And out of all the applicants were the only family that got approved in the whole county. Because the funds got reduced for the hoop houses. So that was a definite yes. This is for you. God gave it to us. And I was convinced. So how are we going to put this thing up for you. We went ahead and. We had to put up front those of your had experience with the grants sometimes most the time you have to put the money up front and the agency will send you the check so we did have to put an investment for us. But how are you going to put it up. When it came from Deerfield supplies actually seen a caters who works through Deerfield and I think there are some catalogs I saw around there over there. Grab grab some catalogs from Deerfield. And in this very good company to work with. And then seen a cake or who carries it just the type of greenhouse different kits. The man there's just he bins over backwards to help you. Elton is his name very friendly young man. But anyway. It was just myself and the boys. And so we worked together to get this thing up go ahead. Matthew. The reason why it looks so funny. It doesn't look like a hoop house. Because of the crime son time we really needed to but just played brother John said. Their schedule for certain vegetables and would not meet in the deadline. We wanted to do to say this year this winter. And we're not there. So I cried last night that's it that's it. We're not doing it with quitting. I was doing motional. And Fred said well even though flipped once he is a member and we have it sitting right here. Praise God for her face and that since our church member she's here she said. I'm buying the only thing you have so that's OK. Even if one C.C. member. We're going to do it so we quickly put the state clause because that's the. In my opinion that's the only way to start a cool haven't had still it will help a lot of germination to have shade so that site looks kind of funny because in the process of building but who cannot meet in the deadline so I just threw this implanted. Yeah. And the logs here to this if you know it were kind of on a slow about two foot difference from here down to thirty four feet. The wit. So the logs are kind of a terrorist to keep the. The soil from enough after five years down the bottom. So that's why we use the cedar logs from the clearing here. Go ahead. This here is just a greenhouse some of it comes in handy when you're growing your little seedlings for the C.S.A. in my wife asked me to build that last year there two years ago I think it was and much of it from salvage material that been in construction I just you know found. Some of your husbands know what I'm talking about your wife sometimes made on her Stan. The need to hoard things you know to grow in the future. But. I felt the need to keep some of these boards. Metal actually two by fours and then we bought the polycarbonate to go on the top which really worked out well. Go ahead and. And here's a supplanting in the palace here the first little see things that came out from the. And feel free to jump in here the last few minutes for almost finished here. If you can do it and that's kind of they're just starting to come up there we still had put the plastic on yet. And you know we're just cousin. Going at it trying to get the stand because it's certainly certain an envelope of time to get these things in the ground for they stop growing we've learned you know. Go ahead. It's thirty four by Eddie Long. And then they're the way we put the sheets on our know how how you did it. John but we just. I tied a little tennis ball on the edges of the plastic. With such climbing rope. Whole climbing wrote used to have. And we flip the climbing rope over and all of us four of us got together and we just yanked on three and pulled it over the top. And you know it becomes uncertain of. I think it's forty eight foot I believe. Wide and it fit just perfect. Just where we wanted it and Lord had it just ride. Go ahead and plant start again this is some lettuce. And it's a little bit day when we get back into public be even bigger hopefully touch soit go ahead. Then we have some a ruler and. Let us there go ahead. This is shot from the side what we did is add some panels some polycarbonate panels. Here we have problems with rabbits and other creatures that. Like to roam around out there. And then some roll up sides here to keep it ventilated in. And I put it had a car polycarbonate door was six foot by eight foot six wide by a foot high. And then up here. Put Campoli carbon in and on the top there's a van I saw John's the way he vented his and I says I want that style I like that event up there so we we ended up put and we're going to vent. Made on hinges somehow I'm not sure how you got it. How our way you can do it keep it ventilated well and. And these are four foot centers these posts two inches well. Two inches sick a little over two inches. And because we have ice problems in Arkansas all. It might be a good idea to keep trusses have a green how I mean a high tunnel if trusses for of loads because we get a lot of ice storms and just ice just settled there. Although this is a gothic. And I've learned a Gothic type. High tunnels better known as well drained so we went ahead and went with that. Go ahead. I think we're finishing up here. This is outside. My wife a little embarrassed by some of the projects going on here but these are carrots. Cool of NG and radishes. And you see the new group book the holes here. It's organic gardening. It's a root crop the holes are made by overzealous cucumber beetles and grasshoppers cucumber beetles will eat anything at their starve and. So go ahead. This is a long talk about C.S.A. box. I'm not sure words where we got it from maybe you can. If you remember the box at the Gog brother John recommended us to get this on and. We have very happy with this call crop. Box. You can just Google it. Call crop. Box It's all plastic or a gate a plastic. Someone someone noted. Yeah because I delivered one box to one lady and she said. This is it because you can clean this inside. Because another. Some people have delivered some cardboard boxes. And they collect mold and moisture. She said I'm not even buying from them. And she said another person just throws the veges in the car. I don't want to buy it from them either. I wanted life that if you can. If you. Interest in the C.S.A. that'll be really good option. Well they have two options half a bushel or three fourths of a bushel we bought three fourths of a bushel. And I think with the shipping was not too much is like fourteen dollars something lined up and that's range. It wasn't too that. When we deliver the boxes. They usually bring their own bags and they. We take the boxes back and we clean it and it's. It's foldable that's what's really nice when you go home. It's completely become slap you can just pack it flat. Very very nice and. And that we try to present the vegetables of some sure you've heard in a kind of a nice way. Looks inviting. And really pack it in there and we're still learning this process were. This just. It's a learning experience and just get your feet wet that's the most important thing and with the knowledge that you haven't. Another thing aspect that I've been learning is the willingness to serve. Create use this as a mission and Vangelis stick tool. We were impressed last year at the conference. That was a big emphasis and we're Greer is really helpful. In fact. From this we've had one particular visual that in that individual. Not an admin asst person who got involved actually my wife met her at a G.M. oak forum oratorio presentation. She made a little. My wife made a little presentation this lady started talking about. Want to sign up to our with our C.S.A.. Now she's want to come to our church and have a cooking class. And so it's a way to introduce people into our faith. Because our drop boxes are foreign boxes are delivered at our seventh amateurs really make that a point so they come right over there and pick them up. And so it's a it's a an evangelist ik tool. In that way before we left for this conference and it got a little chilly in so you can see the cables here. But we stretched and cables are crossed. And we have some big row covers. This is someone's old ones that we had these brokers they're called Agra Bon think it's a light way but we're going to use a medium weight now for to cover and keep the plants warm for winter. Harvesting and to keep them from protected and we put cables across run in this way and. We're going to be draped in a whole wide sheet. All the way across the whole links. So all you have to do is take a few persons here here and here in the aisles and just push him to the middle maybe that side push it to the middle. And we can get what we need to harvest in and bring it right back across the lighting across to the cables. Walking down the aisles. John had that clever idea mentioned saw hummock take advantage of that. So you see what I mean the things that are shared here and there really are helpful. So. Listen. Use a few principles. Not saying you're going to do all of them that's offered. But just take a few and go at a part me. Yeah. She was saying that the cables are attached. Here I just made a matter re boresome some spikes into the ground. Had a vise and just made a loop on the rebar and I put a couple. Rebars in the middle to support it with loops. And just tested it and made sure everything slid over the top of the. I wish I had a pitcher. But don't. In the beginning I wanted to have about ten. C.S.A. members. And then as the time was progressing in this house was not up and I got discouraged I said that's it. Lori. I don't want to have a number you give us the number. You give us. So many members as we can support. Because I don't want to be embarrassed. In January and say we don't have anything. So God gave us ten. It's actually three and a half three I'm sorry. And I tend for three full and one half. But that's perfect you know for us to learn. I look not so much at numbers but I want to know the experience and even the four have one member. Please don't get discouraged just go ahead and do it with one member it's just to go through that for us it's winter to say for you might be some a C.S.A. it's actually perfect opportunity to experience the whole thing just to go and deliver the best Give go talk to people. And even with one person I would still do it. I do want to mention about marketing. Because that's why we hear. How did we market we did everything. Another thing. I think it's very important for people to see what you have especially the first year. Nobody knows what you're going to offer a hard good your quality is going to be so people kind of shaky about that. So we. Because we delivered in church. It just happened one day that I delivered that one. Everybody in the church was there it was not Sabbath of of. Another day for another reason. When people saw what we had to offer. We had so many people wanted to get signed up for next year. So we already have a lot of potential members that actually when they see it. They wanted to like I cursed an early mention like a farmer's markets when they see the box. They want to sign up. Then also I walked in the health food store. Right after delivering the boxes. And they had only Hucker a turn to I mean really tiny like two bunches. That's all for the produce I said Would you be interested. We have locally grown organically grown not sort of fired. Would you be interested all you had to bring over how much do you want sort of a. We delivered like twenty dollars for produce next story for them. So it's just a foot in the door to let them know that who you are so just walk around. Then I always had the bad idea that marketing is like oh I don't want to brag about myself. But then bigger creek and doing. Spring Festival they had really good marketing. Classes. And it's actually you should not feel bad about the market. It's not so you know don't be shy about it just tell the world that. And don't be shy just say. Yes you do have something special for them because you do work for it and that's really good quality. So the word spread around we have neighbors. That actually buying it. And they just call me and say What do you have. We have this business. And we meet somewhere like five minutes from my house. And they pick it up. All of it. So just different options. And we love about two and a half hours from a big city. Springfield Missouri Missouri to two hours about. And we live way out in the middle know where we live about an hour from a viewer we go to church. So anybody can really do this if you just talk. And you're excited. And you have a passion for gardening. So go ahead. NASA I think this is that's the last. That's what I wish I was doing but not of not too much anymore. Every now and then I do get to rest. With my children. My wife. So that's and most enjoyed I think there's just a one minute little thing of the of the. I don't know if you can get that math. He put something together for the Who passes to show you kind of how it went up a little bit. How Katie thank you so much pearly that was amazing. I think I need to come learn a few things from you. God is good. You know I don't know if you noticed that I don't even know how to put it in words but this is a very. This is a very emotional thing. You know people share and. I can't even explain it but it's. It's so raw. It's so it's just I mean you are dealing with. I can't even put it in words but anybody. You know as as they're sharing and I can hear them kind of getting choked up you know we're over here getting choked. Because it's just I mean it's such a beautiful thing but it's such a hard thing. You know how it can be both. I don't know but it's just it's amazing. Thank you for sharing. OK I think I'm going to stop talking. We've talked enough. Please make sure you get one of these. And we've also got all these handouts we're going to just give those handouts to everybody else. I don't want to go home with them. But I will just say one thing. There's two handouts here tools for gardening success and recommended tools and equipment for the market gardener. We really didn't talk about a lot of those things and we've got two allies we really didn't talk about. My son. One of Jonathan is doing a present Taishan I think it's on Friday specifically on tools. So he will be able to do a little more in-depth if you're interested in that. And of course you can ask me afterwards but. I trust that that it was time well spent and. Yeah. The pearly Xeno just do it was a Nike's ad. But I think God is calling us just do it. You gotta put your foot in the water. You know if you're waiting for all for everything the line up perfectly. You're going to you're going to be waiting a long time. But God is looking for people who will go forward by faith. And as you do that he opens the Red Sea. OK let's just close with prayer. There actually father. We've spent a lot of time here today. And I thank you for each person who's stuck with it. And Lord I just pray that you will plant in their hearts. The seeds that you want to be there. We're not saying this is for everybody. But you know. Those who are here with their convictions. I just pray that you would work in each heart in each family. In each situation. Continue to draw them in lead them on the path you want them to take. Blesses through the remainder of the evening and manger of the sick on the streets pray in cheeses.
