The "feud" between Jana and Jessa Duggar has been long documented by TLC cameras. However, it seems Jessa is squashing those rumors by praising her older sister's garden on Instagram. In a series of photos, Jessa and her son Spurgeon watch as Jana plants green beans — and Jessa even calls her sister "amazing."
Jana took over gardening duties from her brother Jason — and has turned the family's backyard into a blossoming vegetable oasis. Along with green beans, Jessa showed off her sister's plots of corn, cantaloupe, watermelon, and cucumber. However, in Jessa's defense, this is not the first time she has gushed about Jana's green thumb.
"It is like a work of art," Jessa said on a past episode Counting On. "She has this thing laid out so perfectly, she's built this whole chicken coop down there, she's got this outdoor entertaining space with these Italian string lights, and it's beautiful. It's a great hangout place in the evenings — we love to go down there and just sit around and have a cup of coffee."
So, why do fans of the TLC reality stars think they are feuding? Well, it all started when Jana shared the story of her jewelry box in the sisters' memoir, Growing Up Duggar. According to Jana, she gifted her prized possession to her little sister when they were younger since they were not getting along. "How I can I work this out, I don't want to go through my entire life having this bad relationship, it's not like you can avoid your siblings," Jana explained, before adding. "There are people that may hurt us, there are people that may have done things to us, and that…it is our responsibility to forgive." Yikes.
Viewers also call out Jessa for seemingly taunting Jana, who has been dubbed the "Cinderella Duggar" due to the fact that she is 28 and single, when it comes to her other sisters' weddings and baby showers. Luckily, Jana has her veggies to occupy her time. "The garden has definitely been something that I've enjoyed doing," Jana said. "It's just a nice, peaceful getaway."
