For me...teaching and gardening was not such a good match.
My hubby and I did try, in those early years of marriage...
but August, when teachers are spending long hours at school,
is when the garden is ready for harvest and produce needs to be canned, pickled and frozen...
Plus, my hubby's folks have always had a huge garden plot...
...with lots of vegetables.
Enough potatoes to share some with the whole family.
Since the girls were little, we'd always go out back to visit the garden...
...on every Sunday visit.
Which explains why the girls gave their grandparents the "Garden Tours" sign
These garden tour pictures were taken in June, toward the beginning of the growing season.
There is a creek that runs through the back yard...
can you see the family of ducks?
Grandma's Tour continues around the house to see all her pretty flowers.
Now...it is August.
We are enjoying the results of all her time and effort.
There is nothing quite as yummy
as home-grown tomatoes and cucumbers.
I hope you all are enjoying some home-grown goodness of your own.
