Herbs and Experiences!

Herbs and Experiences
Last summer we traveled up north and cared for our grand-children, as we always do. We will have a new learning experience this summer and try some gardening, seemed reasonable, easy and fun!
Reasonable it was, easy it wasn't and work abounding! We did manage to grow some distorted tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers. Seemed like an awful lot of work for our meek but precious bounty! There are farm stands everywhere in town with veggies, fruits and fresh flowers just waiting to be purchased! Already done, round, plump and oh so pretty.
However, time spent reaping our harvest of the distorted but delicious little creatures will be etched forever as the gift of experience. Every bite a sweet and delicious memory!
The herb garden pictured above was grandma's, exclusively. It was easy and fun to grow. Next summer maybe the children and I will figure out what to do with them!

Pin It!
