This is the second year we’ve brought our kids to my parent’s place to help harvest their vegetable garden.
A tradition has begun.
It just feels so amazing to pick the veggies off the vine yourself. So satisfying to dig up your own potatoes. When you cook food that you’ve grown or harvested yourself, you just enjoy it more. And I love my kids learning about where food really comes from.
Here’s the view of Mom and Dad’s garden. Dad is the one who does most the maintenance. He loves it. He gets all the plants from D&B Supply and Lowe’s.
Mom and Dad’s place in Twin Falls is pretty unique. Come on, where else have you seen an arch of wagon wheels?
I think it’s pretty dang cool. Mom thinks it’s too old fashioned, but I really appreciate it, especially since I don’t see much uniqueness in my suburbia home.
Old concrete fencing. Rustic geometry.
My boy loved pulling these onions out of the ground. We had to beg him to stop.
Chloe’s favorite: the Roma tomatoes. Sliced and with salt and pepper – she just chows them up. Not sure of their exact variety, but they taste like they are infused with sugar. So good.
I just love this man so much. And seeing my husband in this hat just makes me smile.
Mom and Chloe digging through the cucumbers.
Dad teaching my boy how to harvest spuds. My favorite part. I am an Idaho girl, after all.
Chandler would dig them up, and Chloe would jump right in to grab them.
Here’s our veggie bounty loot we got to take home with us. Thanks, Mom and Dad!
