Summer Gardening

Good morning! :) I am on my way to Spokane, Washington today for Young Living Silver Retreat. There’s going to be training and harvesting and we’re even going rafting. I will keep you posted on Facebook and Instagram! :) It is getting harder and harder for me to leave my family. This year has been CRAZY with traveling so far, but I am looking forward to a three-month reprieve to just be at home.

We have been enjoying some delicious fresh produce from the garden. Garden fresh tomatoes and cucumbers are SO much tastier than their store-bought siblings.

A recent morning harvest.

I can’t take credit for the garden. I’ve helped here and there along the way, but my dad is the gardening hero. Here’s a quick tour for you…by the way, we grow grass really well. 😉

Fried green tomatoes are delicious, but most of the time we just let them all ripen. :)

I have a bunch of jalapeno and bell pepper plants.

Bush beans. I LOVE fresh green beans.

Yellow squash.

We also have cucumber plants, watermelon and cantaloupe. We are looking forward to a melon harvest!

Do you have a backyard garden? I would love to hear what your favorite thing is to grow!

    i just started a garden this year. It’s small and I only have some tomatoes, peppers, chives and melons. hopefully next year I can plan better and reap some better rewards.

    I just started a garden this year. I’ve got blueberries, strawberries, tomatoes and peppers so far. It’s been a great learning experience and it’s so satisfying to grow your own food. Those photos are inspiring me to branch out next year and try some more variety.
