Things have been growing. After being away for two weeks I came home to find a garden I didn’t recognize. Seriously. There were even vegetables growing that I never planted (must have been not-quite-composted seeds in the compost?). The next morning I got to excitedly taste a small harvest of strawberries, cherries, salad greens, early potatoes, and peas. Since then we have also enjoyed onions, raspberries and kale.

This is one of my favorite parts of gardening…enjoying the results of all that work! Tonight I am planning to make and freeze some raspberry-cherry jam (thanks to the addition of raspberries from our neighbors).

I’ve been catching up and working on projects, so I am relying on Instagram for much of my garden photos lately. You can follow me @krystlereeves for more!

Have any of you been as excited as I am about eating things you’ve grown at home? Please share – I’d love to read about it in the comments below!

    I’m one of those people who scrutinizes the tomato plants (or any other plant) each day and excitedly yells out, “A TOMATO” as soon as I spot the first tiny one. Growing vegetables is like magic!

    Sage had fun picking chard and kale out of our garden this evening to put in some green smoothies. She had even more fun putting all the pieces into the blender. It’s neat to watch a baby grow, as it is with a garden. So much wonder. So much joy!

      Awesome! Both grow like crazy! Audrey has discovered the raspberries in the back yard and has been picking all that she can, regardless of ripeness. 😉
