Garden pics

In looking at my previous posts, it looks like we live off on snacks, cereal, and chocolate chips.  Oh....yeah.....I do. Hmmmm.  Well, I AM trying to feed my kids healthy meals, it's just that they aren't that interesting to write about nor take pictures of.  For instance, last night we had boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked in some EVOO (and if you've never watched Rachel Ray - this is extra virgin olive oil!) and some stir fried veggies - zucchini, squash, onions, green pepper, carrots, and a little garlic; and brown rice.  Who wants to see a picture of BROWN rice (instant).  The kids ate it okay, except for the Terrible Two-er.  They weren't begging for seconds.  But I am still lovin' my little garden, and it is really trying to take over the world.  My cucumbers literally take up half the garden space!  I am definitely learning things for next year.  Of course, my husband asked me today when he could mow it down :(  He doesn't realize that I'm looking into what I can plant next for a second planting or things I can plant for late summer and early fall.  I want a year-round garden :O  Anyway, thought I would post some pics of my "harvest", b/c I'm sure some people think that there is more to life than chocolate chips.

Another first, freezing fresh veggies - love my food sealer.

This pic makes me feel like I'm awesome.

Conjoined twins - this pic makes me feel....weird

My oldest daughter, very proud of our first baby carrot!

1st green pepper!  And getting just a few strawberries, I think they will do better next year?!

So, I'm sure NO ONE really wants to look at pictures of vegetables either.  But it's my blog and I think they are, can I use the word AWESOME again?!  (I'm a product of the 80's what can I say.)


  1. Great blog!
    It sounds like you are doing everything right with your kids, especially by having them help with the garden. Let's face it, when you are young the different textures and tastes just aren't as enticing. If your kids don't like particularly healthy food now, they will eventually. Just be a good role model and keep offering them healthy food. One day they WILL eat it :)

  2. awww, Thanks Gina! I AM hoping that learning healthy habits early will kick in one day down the road! I have to admit, and I don't tell my kids this, but I don't really like most vegetables either :O. So we are all learning together how to eat better, cook healthier and make better choices. I enjoy reading your blog and the information is very helpful in my "quest"!
