Teaching the next generation has already begun!
And Landon is a very willing student when it comes to eating strawberries out of the garden. But...
He has a long way to go when it comes to learning his colors. LOL
Fortunately, we had an incredible crop of strawberries this year. This video was taken on May 31st, and we've never before harvested as many berries as we did this year.
Not only did everyone eat as many as they could, but we also shared some with friends and froze (best guess) about 100 pounds.
I'm so thankful for a good harvest of healthy food and loved ones to share it with!

Gardening takes soooo much time and effort!
So why do I do it?
I have lots and lots of reasons...
And then there is the reason I discuss in today's video!!

I have a very large garden and I spend a LOT of my time in the garden.
It's never mostly not a chore, but instead, a time that I look forward to. Gardening relaxes me and gives me a chance to think and pray and plan.
We've been constructing new garden beds and filling them with soil. And because all of the soil has been turned over, all the weed seeds have been exposed and the new beds are full of weeds.
After spending a few hours weeding, I sat down for a break and just thought about how important gardening is to me and how blessed I am to be able to do it on the scale that I do.
I share some of my thoughts during this video.
And while my garden now is beyond gorgeous, there were many years that I gardened in terrible soil without raised beds.
So while you may have garden envy, please let my garden be an encouragement to grow something! Anything! Especially if you have children.
Get your hands dirty and grow something healthy you can share and enjoy with your family.
We've lived at our farm for about 8 years. And every year, I save up some money so that I can expand and improve on our gardens.
This year, our garden has been getting a major addition.
During construction, we had to remove the raspberries from where they were and then "store" them while the new beds were built.
As a result, the raspberries have been transplanted twice.
Some of the raspberries have handled the transition well... and some haven't.
Find out if we have been able to harvest any raspberries this year!
