Look What My Garden Grew!

The first crop is in!  
Baby Bee went to work and pulled out all 32 of them.
Our French Blush Radishes are all harvested!  
Aren't they pretty?
I just love what Baby Bee said when we went to harvest them....

"I can't believe they actually grew in our garden!"

My thoughts exactly!
"Hmmmm....." she continued.  "They taste like the garden.  Like dirt."  

And then, "Yow!  Those are spicy!"

"Let's have them for dinner tonight."

So tonight we will enjoy the fruits of our labor - yeah, I know - little fruits!  

This is part of the reason I wanted to have a kitchen garden.  I wanted my daughter to know where her food comes from.  I wanted her to have this experience.  

Thanks for coming by and I think we have baby tomatoes!  I'm so excited!  

How is your garden coming along?  


  1. That's very exciting! Little radishes are so pretty. The color is beautiful. Enjoy the fruits of your labor. :)

  2. Isn't it wonderful to have your own garden! I love to go in the garden and pick fresh veggies. We have little tomatoes, peppers, okra, squash, zuchinni, cucumbers, pumpkins, gourds and sunflowers planted. I love to watch the garden grow. We are having a nice rain today just what our garden needed. Oh I forgot we have strawberries too!

  3. I will eat just about anything from a garden..except You did a great job tho!!

  5. Those radishes look so yummy! I think all kids need a garden.

  6. Yum! Nothing is better than fresh from the garden vegetables or fruits! They're beautiful!

  7. Wow - you're harvesting already! I just planted tomatoes this week. Your little Bee is going to have so much fun as your garden grows. -amy

  8. Wow - you're harvesting already! I just planted tomatoes this week. Your little Bee is going to have so much fun as your garden grows. -amy

  9. I can't believe you're harvesting already! Your radishes are so cute. Baby Bee will probably think this is gross, but I love radish sandwiches! Slice the radishes, slap some mayo on the bread. Yum! It's so great that you're including BB in the whole process. A future gardener, for sure!
    Happy Monday!

  10. Children and gardens ...they just go together perfectly...glad your little one is having a good growing her food....I wish all children could experience such things....blessings on your week and your garden....

  11. I found your blog through Cindy at Rick Rack and Gingham....think she's hooked us up with the kitchen swap! I'm looking forward to checking out your blog posts. I am a retired teacher so we have teaching in common. Your garden is such a special learning experience for Baby Bee!

  12. I'm so excited for you! It's so much fun growing your own veggies! Baby Bee is so lucky to have this wonderful experience!

  13. Yummy! I think gardens are the best! Enjoy!!
    Hugs, Lisa

  14. I have already had three ripe tomatoes! And they tasted great. You are a wonderful and wise mother to teach your daughter this.

  15. nothing is better than the sweet rewards of planting your own garden patch.



  16. Wonderful! I remember the very moment I pulled them out of the ground.....amazed that I grew them!
    Very nice...plant a blackberry bush, if you have will be astounded at how they grow.but leave plenty of room..they will take over like mint!!!


Thank you for buzzing by and taking time to leave me a little note. I always enjoy hearing from my friends.
