First Harvest

June 15, 2009

Dave, my beloved husband, put a garden in our backyard this year – a first for us. It’s been fun to see things actually growing. It feels sort of miraculous.

Today we had our first harvest – of green beans. Pole and bush. We’ll do a taste test tonight at dinner to see what we prefer! Bridget was very excited to pick the beans and put them in her little basket.

Incidentally, there may be more appearances of the older children after this week…school is out on Thursday! So we’ll have lots of together-time adventures to share. Or, I may be so busy breaking up sibling squabbles and keeping everyone on an even keel that I will completely drop out of the blogosphere for a few months. Let’s hope for the former option!
