Hey there my friend's and family! Here in Missouri it's harvest time in the garden! It is so much fun with my Grandson's! For them it's like a treasure hunt! They get so excited when they discover a ripe Tomatoe or 🥒 Cucumber or Summer Sqaush!
They want to eat them right then or they want me to go cook 🍳 supper even if it's 10:00 in the morning 🌄. For the vegetables that I didn't plant we try to get to our local Farmers Market! .
We stopped this week and bought fresh blackberries, peaches 🍑, and tomatoes 🍅! My little guys thought we were at a party! They were so cute! I gave each of them a sack to carry to the car. They though they were really big stuff! So last night for dessert 🍨 we had fresh peaches 🍑 and chocolate cake. They loved it!
Sometimes I forget about the experiences that they haven't had! Their mother was a heat and eat girl and not much on vegetables! These boys had never had corn 🌽 on the cob. I didn't plant any corn this year. So I also bought corn 🌽at the Farmers Market! I cooked it for supper and buttered and seasoned the boys corn. When they took that first bite I think they thought they were in heaven! The looks on their faces were pure bliss! 🤣! As Tom said, "I had my moment!"
They also like to help me pick flowers 💐 (which is my passion!) and they are always bringing me a dandelion bouquet. I'm working on them bringing me flowers with longer stems! Right after Jaylyn was born I made my daughter some welcome baby bouquets, the first of the season! I didn't get my Sunflowers planted this Year and I really miss them but I have lots of other flowers to choose from!
My newest garden acquisition, Lime Light Hydrangeas! Oh and heirloom roses! I'm pretty excited about these and I can't wait to see them do their thing! Well I think that's it for now. I would love it if you shared your garden's and children/Grandchildren with me. Send me pictures and tell me your thoughts.
Talk to you later! FG Farm Girl
