Last year that vision finally became a reality. And we LOVED having our garden. We enjoyed eating lettuce and carrots and herbs and blueberries straight from our back yard. This year, Scott and Isabella have expanded our crops to include potatoes, garlic, onions and a bunch of other yummy items we can't wait to sink our teeth into.
Today was a special day, because we were finally able to harvest our very own strawberries. And I can't even tell you how excited the kids were to do this. In our own backyard!
We only have one box, so obviously there weren't as many as we had access to when we picked them at Jones Orchard recently, but I know for a fact that the experience of picking them in our backyard was much more thrilling for all of us.
And finally, here's my picture of the day,... our awesome little garden:
It's like having our very own mini farmer's market!
