These Moments Make Me Smile




Reece: "Where are you going?"

Me: "Out to the garden to pick some food for lunch. Wanna come?"

Reece: "Sure."

One of the most important lessons my little man has learned in his short time on this wonderful earth...
his food comes from the backyard.

  2. Yes! I'm writing up a very similar tale for my Thurs Around the Garden. Knowing the cycle and source of our food is surely the most important of lessons to learn.

    1. Can't wait to read it Lisa. And I totally agree. It makes me so happy to know that Reece will think most of his food comes from the backyard - vegetables, some fruit, eggs, honey and bee pollen. Gotta love it!

  4. And from the woods. I always laugh as my kids ask me, "Can I eat that too?" And then they run off to find the nearest edible plants.

  8. Mine don't even come in to eat it, :) they think the garden is just a new dining area.

    Wonderful moment in your day Kim, thanks for sharing.

    1. Ah, yes this happens with Reece too! If I can't seem to find him in the yard I check the vegetable garden or the area where the wild raspberries grow...I usually find him picking and eating somewhere :)
