Today it seems like there are many things I could write about, but I find what I really want to share with you is our garden.
I love our garden.
I had no idea how rewarding it would be to look out my kitchen window every morning to watch it grow. Or how forward I would look to my weekly weed pulling. How much I would enjoy simply walking around and examining new signs of growth.
I am so anxious for fresh veggies from our garden. It's become so important to me to know what is in our food. And it's important for us to teach our girls what our land can provide us with.
It's astonishing to me how it went from a plot of dirt with some pine straw thrown in for good measure to this.
Our zucchini plant is so big it's almost scary. Will it really get bigger?!
Little green tomatoes.
And it looks like squash will be on the menu this week. My favorite!
And speaking of gardening, look at these old red clay pots I picked up this weekend for a couple dollars. My mom and I went to a basement sale at a historic hardware store, which was amazing and filled with all kinds of treasures I'll tell you about another time. I couldn't resist these tucked in a box in the very back of the basement covered in dust... my husband mentioned something about them looking similar to what I could find at Wal-Mart. Of course he said this with a smile since he knows I find the idea of planting in something old so much better than new. (smile)
Hope your week ahead is wonderful!
