It's no secret that I love to spend time in my garden. I really love the quiet and solitude that I can easily find here, but more times than not, I share that space with one or two kids. I love spending time with them and teaching them along the way. I love watching things grow, especially with my kids next to me, along with harvesting our own food and incorporating it into our nightly meals. To see your garden turn into something from literally nothing, there's no feeling like it.
You know, I never realized that this would be something I'd love to do so much, but it's a really great experience to learn and grow in. It's undoubtedly therapeutic, and there's no denying how good of a thing is for us all. Along with being in the garden, we harvested a few scarlet runner beans today too. When opening the pods, we were greeted with a bright pink bean, and it was pretty incredible. They're currently soaking, so we'll make something small with them to see if it's something we learn to cook with and enjoy.
You know how it's so easy to get caught up cooking the same few things we know and love so well? Yeah, me too. I've taken to challenging myself more and more in learning new things and how to cook with what's currently coming out of the garden. Anyway, as you saw on the last post, we picked a bucket full of blueberries recently and I found this incredible recipe I'll share next! Stay tuned!
