    We enjoyed sweet potatoes all winter long from a fantastic harvest last fall. In fact, I still have a crate full in the basement that will feed us this summer. I planted out about 25 organic slips purchased from Country Corner Greenhouse in Shepherdsville in late May and by early November, we had four nursery crates full of one of nature’s perfect foods. Seven months and counting in storage with no spoilage is impressive.

    I have noticed people tend to glorify the first-century church. People talk about returning to primitive Christianity like it is the cure for all the problems the church faces. However, if you move past the first few chapters of Acts, the church had lots of issues. The church was filled with people from various backgrounds, maturity levels and world views trying to figure out what it means to be a Christian in this world. Just like the church is today.
