Counting On fans might be obsessed with Jana Duggar’s relationship status and trying to find any hint that she is courting, but the oldest Duggar daughter has her attention focused elsewhere – on her plants. The 28-year-old has taken over the family garden, and she is working hard on growing fruit, veggies, and flowers, and her sister Jessa is impressed.
“This girl is amazing. Swipe left to see more pics!” wrote Jessa on her Instagram caption of a series of pics featuring Jana working in the backyard.
Jana’s garden has an assortment of flowers and plants, plus a variety of veggies and fruits including cucumbers, strawberries, squash, zucchini, okra, corn, green beans, tomatoes, honeydew, cantaloupe, watermelon, and potatoes.
She also built a chicken coop that she calls the “Chick Inn,” and showed it off earlier this year on social media. Apparently, Jana got inspiration from home decorating gurus Chip and Joanna Gaines and included a sitting area in the structure (the family has given her the nickname Jana Gaines).
But, even though she is enjoying time in her garden, the fact that she is still single and living at home at the age of 28 is leaving fans desperate to know why. The theories about Jana’s single status have ranged from her being a prisoner in her parents’ home to speculation she is dating a girl.
Jana’s relationship status is a constant topic of conversation on Reddit, and many believe that she isn’t married because she doesn’t want to be a mother. Of course, getting married doesn’t automatically equal being a mom, unless you are a Duggar. The average time between a courtship announcement and pregnancy announcement in Duggar world is 13 months.
And, since Jana has raised her siblings pretty much her entire life, fans think that the Cinderella Duggar might just not have any interest in kids of her own at this point.
In the past, Jana has said that she wasn’t going to court and marry the first guy that came along, and some fans believe that she has watched too many of her siblings do just that, and she is doing everything she can to avoid going down that road.
Whatever her reasons are for not courting and still being single, Jana is definitely living life on her own terms and doesn’t seem to be in any hurry when it comes to settling down with a guy and starting her own family.
Since she isn’t married, Jana doesn’t have her own social media account (per Duggar family rules), so the only glimpse we get into her life is if a family member posts a pic or if she makes an appearance on Counting On.
Hopefully, we will find out more about Jana Duggar when Counting On returns to TLC for season eight in July.
