Two weeks....and how our garden is growing! We have had two absolutely perfect weeks of weather for the garden - sunny, warm and a smattering of rain almost every day - typical June weather here! It's hard to believe that three weeks ago it was snowing and we were worried about severe winter weather warnings during a camping event!
One of Skipper's biggest complaints during the "off-season" is the expensive packages of fresh herbs that I throw into the grocery cart each week.. So it is always a relief when my herb garden takes off and I can step out the back door and harvest exactly what I need for a recipe, fresh and flavorful!
The flavor and texture of tomatoes that ripen on the vine is out of this world wonderful, and the first ones picked are ALWAYS the best! Later on in the season we'll have so many tomatoes and peppers that we won't know what to do with them all, but for now, it is so nice to enjoy the first handful of the season!
We are already enjoying rhubarb, strawberries and herbs from our gardens, but I'm especially enjoying sharing the experience with my little ones - they were so excited to plant seeds and seedlings, and LOVE watering with their little water cans every chance they get!
