prairie daze

claiming our daze and our days on the prairie

garden greens ii

we have gratefully received the bounty of our garden and suddenly couldn’t eat all that was ready to be eaten: 3 kinds of lettuce, snap peas, spinach, cilantro, mint, chocolate mint, oregano, parsley. i often feel like i don’t give enough to the church, so it was soothing to pick and wash and dry and bag our garden’s bounty to give away on sunday.

greens and herbs to give away

then i asked the older kids to make labels…

i warmed at micah’s assumption that everybody would be able to read his labels too:

    I’m very impressed with Micah’s inventive spelling. I know he just finished KG . . . but I think he’s ready for 2nd grade!
