Thankful Thursday

Today I’m thankful for my little garden.

Fresh Sage I cut for dinner the other night.

I love being able to cut fresh herbs, and ingredients for recipes right from my garden.

Even though gardening can be maddening, my garden is a bit sad this year…things are not growing like I’d like and there is a never ending battle with ants/bugs, but I still love it. The pruning, watering, harvesting, and taking notes…..while it is work, it’s relaxing.

Mostly I love how much better food taste when I know it’s fresh ingredients that I grew myself.  And, I love that Sky will spend time working in the garden with me. Well, she mostly eats the strawberries till she’s full, but she does like harvesting the salad stuff and prepping it for dinner. I’m also thankful that Mark builds what I need for the garden and comes up with great ideas to make it better and easier for me!

  1. I use botanical sprays from the hardware store. I know you can mix them yourself with peppermint oil etc. But, I go for quick and easy and buy it pre-made. FM has it, as well as Ace and Lows…so it’s pretty easy to find….over here anyway.
