Enjoying the Garden

Faithful HomesteaderAfter having such a rough time with the garden last year, I am extra thankful for the fruits of our labor this year. We have already been able to harvest some things and other plants and flowers are looking good.

We planted a couple of peach trees this year and they already have peaches. My husband said it was because he planted them at just the right time. I have never had a fresh picked peach. We just shared our first one. It smelled good and was quite yummy. I have been watching that peach for a while and I was so excited it was finally ready to eat.

My husband is picking blackberries almost every day. I never really ate blackberries before my husband started growing them. He loves having fresh fruit to pack for his work lunches.

Love our blackberries

We discovered that we have a grapevine that ended up growing up into a tree we have out back. There are so many grapes that we will have to get some from the roof, others with a ladder and maybe even need to climb the tree. Personally, I am a bigger fan of grapes than blackberries. I am looking forward to them.
