Harvest As Family Activity

One of the best things about a garden is harvesting. Combine that with your children, make it something to look forward to on the way home or when they come to visit. It makes memories. It is a rare and genuine manufactured memory. Buddy went out with me tonite and picked beans, helped dig for potatoes, and pointed out red tomatoes. Then he INSISTED on carrying the harvest bowl into the house all by himself (its a long way for a two year old, steps, etc) and he rendered yeoman service. Joy.

Below we have a work table covered in fruits of the garden. Just the way I like it!


  1. Oh man, your garden looks great! Congrats!

  2. I can taste it now!
    -fresh green beans and potatoes with bacon and onions
    -cucumbers and onions
    -sliced tomatoes
    That's some mighty fine eating. :)

  3. That is indeed some fine eating. The menu ended up as:

    Thyme roasted potatoes
    French dressed harcourt verts
    Bruschetta (with fresh bread)

    It was, indeed, tasty!

  4. Mike, your little guy looks like he is a big help! Glad you've got tomatoes....ours are coming in slowly but surely.
