We are grateful for so many things. Here is what comes to mind from this past week:
~ peas and more peas as we near the final harvest (and purple ones that we love to grow each year!)
~ a "cupcake and flower stand" in our front yard that our young entrepreneurial daughter decided to set up with her friends on the weekend (and the friends and neighbours who dropped by to support our young entrepreneurs)
~ one dozen delicious Seed of Life bars that I was happy to barter in exchange for plants from our garden! (if you have not tried these amazing high-quality handmade energy bars yet then by all means check them out! They are now available at the Kitchener market, and various local health food stores - made locally by our friend Theresa)
~ a gifting of organic bokchoy and (my favourite) hakurai turnips from our friend Angie at Fertile Ground CSA - gorgeous produce that we just can't seem to grow here like she does on her farm!
~ a sweet baby in our house that now sleeps for more than two hours at a time!
~ the season of fresh local berries! red currants, service berries, mulberries, raspberries and blackberries and soon to be ready cherries and blueberries
~ Tulsi (or Sacred/Holy Basil) that we grow in abundance in our herb garden, with it's many health benefits - for gifting to friends, drying for winter tea blends, and making into this refreshing Holy Basil Sipping Vinegar
