"Taste and see that the LORD is good. . ."
I was out in the garden planting some peppers and weeding. As I was tending to one of the raised beds, I was greeted by a beautiful array of strawberries that were just begging to be picked. I absolutely LOVE strawberries and let me tell you, I struggled long and hard (about 5 seconds) with whether or not to clean them and immediately freeze them, or clean them and immediately EAT them. Can you guess what I did? (she says while wiping the sugar and juice from her lips!) Well actually, I didn't eat ALL of them, even though I wanted to!
I have started freezing some of the strawberries. When I have enough, I want to make some strawberry preserves. Oh, the thought just tickles me. It doesn't take much to make me happy, let me tell you! :> ) I just love things that are homemade. They are sooooo good for you and they taste DELICIOUS! I love the fact that our vegetables and fruit from our garden are all organic! YAY!!! No yucky pesticides here! To be able to grow our own produce is such a blessing.......a true gift from God!
Are any of you able to harvest from your gardens yet? If so, what have you gotten and what are some things you plan on making with them?
