hello, all.  I hope you are all having a truly spiritually beneficial Lent! 

when my parents divorced, we totally neglected our back yard.  we didn't go back there for a year and a half, as we were all very depressed from the family falling apart.  well, by the grace of God, we're recovering from the seperation. 

now that it's spring, we are trying to clean up the back yard.  so far it's a bare, blank canvas.  we are so excited  Grin

we are going to plant a garden.  is there a blessing in the Book of Needs for a garden?  I'd love to have Father come and bless it.

I've found two prayers in Polish. One for blessing the grain before sowing and the second one for blessing the setting of vineyard.

The second one seems appropriate. I suppose there must be one in English somewhere in euchologions.

Back home the priest would read St. Trifon's prayer, cursing all damaging sort of insects and bugs or natural phenomena like hail. They read it on Pentecost when all villages go in a very solemn procession to the fields.
