A Must Have Food Item for Summer

I was so spoiled by our hot "Spring" weather a few weeks ago, and now we're back to our chilly weather again. So thinking about summer is really warming my soul!

My hubby is our gardener, and this year he's trying out a spring garden with broccoli, spinach, and bak choy. They're growing (not as quickly as I'd like), and some have gone to make a pesky groundhog a bit fatter. But I'm waiting for the scorching days of summer sun and the heirloom tomatoes that are going to be growing in that garden! Nothing is more wonderful than eating freshly picked cherry tomatoes from the garden -- I don't think there's a tomato more divine!

What summer food are you waiting for?!?

  1. That tip about nutrients for toddlers over the course of days also was a light bulb moment for me. Glad it helped you. Glad you aren't as stressed ;).

    Anyways, I couldn't locate your email so I decided to respond to your comment here.

    Also, I can't wait for more fruit to be available. I hate apples and oranges. Come on already! So amazing that you grow your own produce. When we have a real yard, we want to grow stuff too. Whether or not they last is another story. Good luck!

  2. I don't know about summer food, but I can't wait for my pea plants to start producing fresh peas...yum!
