The kids have been fascinated with the garden this year right from the beginning and putting the manure in to planting the seed and even picking the occasional ripe pea. Last night however was the first time I we were actually in the garden all to once harvesting anything that was ripe. Just listening to the kids excitement was worth all the time and effort we put into the garden. They were picking everything they could get their hands on, smiling and giggling the whole time. It was so much joy for me to be listening to them so excited. The most exciting moment however other then picking the only ripe tomato was that they were just as thrilled to be eating the same things they picked in the garden for dinner. As a mom it was just as rewarding to know that they were happy eating food that was not only healthy for them but also safe from all chemicals.
Even though it can be a lot of work especially this year with the dry spell we have a garden filled with fun and laughter but most of all love. I wish the world could share in the same joy we shared last night.
