I loved having our garden in Utah, Mr. Steady and H-man made me beautiful garden boxes, tore up a part of the yard and we planted our favorite veggies.
(how cute is H at 2 1/2... miss his chubby cheeks!)
Planting a garden (for me) is not only budget-friendly, and health-conscious... but so much more! I loved getting to teach H about how things grow, and for us to go and see each day what was budding, blooming, growing and eventually ripe! I so delighted in seeing the bounty of our work. There is something therapeutic and beautiful about a garden, I can't quite put it to words : )
I missed having a garden last Spring and Summer! I missed the fresh tomatoes, and sugar snap peas. I missed watching my kids get excited about the constant change... So even though we are still renting I decided that it was time to plant so we can grow : )
Here is our container garden on the day we planted it (8weeks ago)
Here is our little garden today!
We have harvested lettuce at least half a dozen times and have had the most tasty fresh salads! I am dying for the first tomato to ripen! And I can't wait until the zucchini are big enough to pick!
So much joy in such a simple thing!
Thank you Lord for my little garden!
