On the way home from church we stopped to water the garden. We have a community garden plot about a mile from our house and love growing some of the food we share around our table. Abby loves her opal basil, Sophie loves the grape tomatoes and Noah loves the jalapeno peppers. We love making rainbows with the hose and 'accidentally' spraying each other (what is happening in this picture!). Some days we drive there, others we bike. So far this season I have used the lemon verbena in an iced mint green tea and Abby has sampled a few bites of opal basil right off the plant. We look forward to the treasures of the season!
