Dinner from the Garden
We don't have enough to eat home grown every night, but at the moment every meal has something from the garden in it.
Hubs and I have been looking forward to this all winter. The vege garden is a lot of work, especially when we're both so busy, and this year its felt like we've done nothing but plant things that we have to wait a year or more to produce anything. We keep telling ourselves we're just getting established, but it can be really frustrating.
Now, however, the hard work is starting to pay off, just a teensy bit. The kids are completely excited about it all - well, not excited enough to actually eat the lettuce they carefully picked - and a family trip around the garden is now mandatory after school, just to see what's changed since yesterday.
My plan for urban bliss feels like its crept one step closer.
