30 Days of Thanksgiving: Day 5

I am thankful for our garden.  

We have continually enjoyed fresh foods since May.  And we're still picking produce as of this week! We've had lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, zucchini, cauliflower, broccoli, heirloom carrots, and more.  We've had a variety of herbs, as well as lots of flowers. 

It's meant a lot to me.  It's been a place to teach the boys life lessons, it's been a source of fresh produce, and at times, it's been a place of escape. 

I'm already excited to work on my garden next year, but until then, I'm often reminded of how thankful I've been for the garden this year.

Recent pickings - Carrots, turnips, green tomatoes, beets, beet greens, kale, and parsley!
