Gratitude Post







Day 14:

Today I am thankful for… our garden this past summer. Not only did I get to teach my kids the value of hard work, and what you can get from it. We also got some amazing produce from it. We had 7 gardens, all varying in size around our yard.

The kids had their own square foot gardens, that really did amazing! Plus we had a few extra gardens for peas, green beans, cucumbers & squash, and tomatoes. We also had some container gardens for our pepper plants, which we just got the last of the peppers off.

This year we were able to can some green beans, which I love to eat all year long, and canned some tomato sauce. Plus we had onions, carrots (which we are still harvesting), cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes, squash, broccoli, cauliflower, peas, spinach, and beets! Great food. We are already planning for next year.

What are you thankful for today??
