Sowing and reaping
Hello everyone! I hope you had a fabulous week so far and are looking forward to a relaxing weekend!
I’ve been pretty busy around here potty training the tot. It’s been pretty simple and I feel bad that I waited so long. Poor guy has just been waiting for me to take him:( I can’t believe he is so big that he is out of the diaper phase. Wow, time flies.
This week, I’ve also been pretty blessed to receive some goodies from my friend’s gardens and I wanted to share. First, my friend Christy gave me a few bags of strawberries. I was so excited since my Whole Foods trip didnt happen this week and I refuse to buy them at Walmart. This was perfect timing.
Secondly, my friend Summer gave me a jar of canned peaches. These are some that her and her mom canned and they have just been sitting in pure goodness also known as water + cane sugar for about a year. I had some last night over organic maple yogurt. It was the perfect treat after a six mile bike ride.
So, this leads to my question. Do you get to reap the rewards of your friend’s toil in the summer? Last summer, my friend Amanda brought me a huge bounty each week consisting of red onions, blackberries, lettuce, squash, cucumbers, zucchini, etc. During these hard economic times, this is a great way to bless other people.
So, do you share or do others share with you? What’s your favorite seasonal fruit and or veggie? Have you and your friends considered planting a “community” garden?
