Around the Abbey

Spring at Mississippi Abbey

Spring is here in full force.  The potatoes have been planted for this year.  We are still eating the potatoes we harvested last year.  They should last until June.

The tomato plants that we started from seed are being hardened off before they are planted in the garden.

The birds have returned including our favorites, the Baltimore oriole!

 We are also living with the realities of the covid-19 virus.  Iowa has been under a stay home order since March.  We don’t feel it too much as we don’t go out much but it has been challenging getting food and making doctors’ appointments.
We are keeping health care workers, people who are sick, and those who are isolated or at home with young children very much in prayer these days.
