Good Day

Today was a good day. I was able to harvest...

a bowl full of snap peas
a large bowl of lettuce
a bowl full of strawberries

oh and I got 6 eggs from the chickens.

Tonight for dinner we had steamed sugar snap peas from the garden, I added chives picked from the pot on our deck to the mashed potatoes I made and for dessert we are having strawberry angel food cake with strawberries picked this afternoon.

I love being able to grow my own food. It feels good to be able to provide my family with healthy, delicious foods grown right in our own backyard.


  1. Oh how I am mourning the garden I was going to have this year... alas

  2. I went out and picked strawberries tonight too. I love eating from the garden! Sounds like yours is doing wonderful.

  3. I can't wait!! Lucky you! We've been eating lettuce & rhubarb. I can't wait for peas. Fresh peas are sooooo yummy.
