I went out to our garden today to pick the carrots. They're finally ready!! They take so long to grow but they are worth it. I love that our daughter can go out, pull them out of the ground, wash them off with the hose and eat them. There's something very satisfying and grounding about that.
I picked the last of the cherry tomatoes. They were so good and we grew so many! There were cucumbers but we picked all of those last week. The plant is now dying off. The peppers are still going strong - jalapenos and green bells. I think it will take a cold snap to stop them, but then they will be the last of summer's gifts to us!! Then it will be time to put the garden to bed.
So we will enjoy our fresh snacks while we can!
