When I was a young girl, I went to the garden to help my Grandmother with the planting and harvest of the wonderful vegetables. That set in me a desire to have my own garden someday and my love for fresh fruits and vegetables. Each year when my Great Granddaughter Ella visits for her summer visit we get to share the garden with her, passing on the hope that someday she to will have a desire to have her own garden and pass this art of gardening on to her Granddaughters. We are very blessed in our generation to be able not only to pass this along to our Grandchildren but also our Great Grandchildren. Gardening is truly an art that we are so honored to have received from my Grandparents and to pass on to the next generations.

The summer garden in our area brings a very busy harvest time, and lots of irrigation to keep the tender plants from drying up. We had record breaking rains in the spring that kept us from planting on time, but then we were finally able to get some of the garden planted and it has been giving us an abundant harvest.

Having a garden is a family tradition and a family effort a piece of us that we are passing on to the next generations. I sure hope that you have a space that you can have a garden or that you have a wonderful farmers market that you can enjoy. Try to pass it on so that we can all continue to enjoy these wonderful fresh fruits and vegetables that we enjoy today. Hope you are having a wonderful summer and will hope to see you again soon!
Peace and Joy
