The First Harvest   |   April 21, 2016

We don’t have many rainy days here but we had a stretch of rain a few weeks ago. It was warm and rainy and since Carlie and Donny are so use to spending so much time outside they were constantly running to the door to look out to see if it was still raining. If the rain even lightened up to sprinkling, they would run out to play. They found a deep red puddle to play in. They were not supposed to be do this but I couldn’t help but take a few pictures before beginning the long process of cleaning this up.


Donny loves to sit on my lap while I sew and now he thinks he knows how to make quilts on his own. I’ll find him at the sewing machine laying out squares.

This weekend we got to have our niece and nephew stay with us and we so much enjoyed having them. Our first few radishes were ready to pull and it was a big deal. We check our garden every morning and water and weed it often. Carlie woke up a few mornings ago and the first thing she asked was, “Mommy, want to go check to see if our carrots are orange yet?” I told her it takes a long time for carrots to grow and I was certain we needed to be more patient because they weren’t ready yet. She said, “Ok, want to go out and watch the carrots growing?”



Don’t ever lose sight of the little miracles life gives us.



Donny wanted to harvest something too so he picked the top off a weed and brought it to show me.




The first taste.

      Glad you enjoy it! Most of the time it’s fun keeping up with our blogging hobby. Besides it gives us something to remember family times in days gone by.
