Our grandson Thomas learned first-hand that one often gets to reap what one sows. He loves carrots and his Mama loves gardening so it was natural they planted a lot of carrot seeds in their garden. Harvest time! The photo on the right shows Thomas, Mama, and our Black Lab Sadie enjoying the moment, followed shortly afterwards by the satisfying sound of yummy and healthy just-picked and washed carrot crunching.
The wooden structure in the photo on the left is a U-shaped raised garden frame that was built by our son Ben and daughter Stephanie as a gift for My Beloved to make it easier on her back to garden.
Any kid who likes karrots is kewl!
LOL! I think so too (but I might be a wee bit biased!)
Growing ones own veggies is awesome
It is indeed, Joanne.
Lovely. I love fresh produce Russ! ❤
Me too.. I also often prefer veggies raw rather than cooked.
How exciting for Thomas to know this!!!!
I agree; it’s a great skill set to have.
oh, how wonderful. this will teach him the process and cycle firsthand. no better kind of lesson.
I agree it’s a great lesson, Beth. A lesson in miracles.
Nothing better than doing it in the own garden, what lovely carrots too. That is exciting not just for children but adults too. It makes me always happy to harvest my own things.
Your comment brought a beaming smile to my face, Ute. I couldn’t agree with you more. Gardening is like so many other things in life: You plant the seeds, carefully nurture them, and reap what you sow. I know that you truly understand that the best seeds to plant in life are those of grace, compassion, kindness, and love.
Absolutely right! Yes those are the best seeds! ♥
