summer corn.....

isn't this time of year amazing... just kicking back in our garden... wearing flip flops... letting the sun warm our shoulders... filling kiddie pools with chilly water... and eating lots of summer corn!!!

we are so excited that our gardening is paying off... so we should be rewarded with loads of veggies and lots of peppers! This is a jalapeno pepper... if we leave it for a few more weeks it shall have more heat to it... it's hard for our oldest girl to not pluck it... oh the anticipation... We love to have the girls helping in the garden... It teaches responsibility and respect and most importantly to be green! They are so nice to the flowers and herbs... carefully peeking at each and every fruit... watching things grow... watching things change shades of color...

  4. Awesome! You captured the essence of the day perfectly.

    I love that picture of your little one grabbing that ear of corn for all it's worth.
