Enjoying the Benefits

Whenever I plant anything I have extreme doubts of whether that particular seed or plant is going to make it.  This year as I planted our first garden at home I really felt that way since so much of what I planted I had started from seedlings inside during the cold winter months.
But now the end of July we are starting to really reap the benefits of having a wonderful garden right outside!
The other night mother and I picked broccoli, zucchini, yellow squash, snap peas, swiss chard, green beans and lettuce.  How rich a feeling it was!

What a JOY it was to dig around under the leaves and discover such treasures! Thanks for letting me reap what you had sown, my dear. I am actually ready to cook up some fresh stir fry for your lunch. ;-)
