Another day in the neighborhood

Although we have been experiencing way more than normal rain for June the majority of our crops are doing well and producing yummy veggies. Here is a picture of a few of our champion radishes. They were used in a variety of dishes for our family and our chickens enjoyed the tops. Recipes will be added soon so everyone can please send me any good recipes you have and I will share with the group.

Our kids are slowly but surely learning the love of dirty fingernails. Spending hours pulling weeds, planting new seeds and the amazement of watching them grow. Our middle son, who is 8, loves the harvest. Everyday he asks what he can "pull" and he will giggle like a schoolgirl as he feeds the chickens and they nibble at his fingers. That has been one of the biggest blessings we have received from winding back the clock, per say, and teaching the kids how food really works and where it really comes from. Watching it go from plate. Happy growing!!
