On this 11th (and 12th day….I’m having to combined the two. I came home so tired last night that I just couldn’t get on. ) I am showing thanks to our garden. It is so neat to me to be able to go out back and pick our ingredients for our salads, stir-fry, or veggie of the night.
We started our garden 3 summers ago. It was just a little patch out back. Today we have gone from our little “patch” out back to a nice garden area with three large growing areas. We experiment with the different crops we grow and this year we’ve decided to grow our first fall garden.
~ There can be no other occupation like gardening in which, if you were to creep up behind someone at their work, you would find them smiling. ~
Keagan loves to go out back and pick something for dinner….Or breakfast at that. During the summer he requested cucumber before school and went out and picked his own. How much more of a learning experience could you get for a child!?
With all this garden talk I also thought I would post a picture for macro Friday of the pomegranate we attempted to eat this week. Key word being, “attempted.”
Does one know how to eat a pomegranate because this family sure didn’t…I even looked it up on ehow.com and we’re still confused. Needless to say, I don’t believe we’ll be growing one of these trees in our garden anytime soon…. 😉
