First Harvest

I picked the first of our harvest this morning!! I hadn't been out to the garden for days because of all the rain we've been having, but with the sun shining this morning, I set out to pull weeds that I knew were probably taking over because of the rain. Lo and behold, I find a good handful or two of ripe strawberries, and many more that should be ready to pick this week. And we've already got zucchini and squash that should be ready very soon as well! Gardening is a lot of work, but when you bring in a bowl of goodies like this, it makes it all worth it!

Just what you needed!! More strawberries!! :)

Are you going to be making food for Abbi out of your garden? We have a HUGE family garden plot and I cant wait to start harvesting and cooking for Miles. Right now I just plan on freezing it for later.. but I'm so excited!! I've already got a few books coming my way so I'll tell you if I find a baby cook book that I love! (you could always use a few extra cookbooks..right?) :)

We have to get over to the garden this week to weed too. its a disaster!!

Yummy.. I can't wait for my garden to produce.. Though I was later planting and things are just starting to grow up.. We harvest much later up here.. Though the strawberried are forming but won't be picked for a while.

I too am excited to make baby food from our garden. I just purchased a magic bullet to help puree the veggies as it is a lot less mess than my food processor..

Do you have the Jessica Seinfeld kids cookbook deceptively delicious? It has some fun things to make...the spinach brownies are actually quite tasty (as long as you let them cool completely first!)

Those look amazing! Planting a garden is high on my list of things to do next spring. A neighbor brought us some of his strawberries last week, and they're just so much better than store-bought. There's no comparison.

Sigh! I wish we didn't have rabbits! They eat everything. Well, I guess they don't like corn on the cob, so I planted twelve of those, almost a foot high now. Can't wait to see what happens!
