I don't know about you, but we've had quite a few rainy days in the past weeks. This has caused lots of growth in our gardens, which is great when we're talking flowers and veggies, but not so much with weeds! Seriously, don't judge the weeds, okay? Awesome.
I love having fresh veggies outside our door. We've picked and pickled some radishes, have been enjoying lots of salads with the leaf lettuces, and are snacking on sugar snap peas. The green beans are growing all over the place, and flowers are sprouting on pumpkins, squash, cherry tomatoes, and cucumbers. We have beautiful rainbow chard, and budding broccoli too!
Our rose bush also just produced its first bloom. Swooning.
I love the time of year when I can walk around the yard with some garden scissors and a mason jar and come back in with a beautiful bouquet! Sometimes, I go for a more wildflower looking bouquet, like this one from last week. Sigh. Summer is pretty, isn't it?
So, what do you do when your fridge is full of fresh strawberries? What's blooming or growing in your gardens? Do you have chalkboards in your home? What do they currently have on them? I've love to hear all about it- leave a comment below!
