Harvest Monday and Family Time

The following are some of the things I harvested this week.  This was picked on on one of the first days of the week.

Dug a hill or two of potatoes and and fixed them for our evening meal one night.  Had a few lettuce leaves and a couple spinach leaves, two cucumbers and four tomatoes.

More picked another day!

On Friday I even harvested a zuchini!

Saturday's pickings included a yellow squash!

Family from VA is in town for the week!  Grandson Mac, Myself,  Granddaughter Emily Grace and hubby, Bob and behind us is Granddaughter Ashley!  We are having lots of fun and laughter with them and the two other families living near us.  We are missing our family from MD and wish they could have come too!

Granddaughter Gracie and daughter Sue participating in the bag games!

Our oldest Grandson, Ryan, who is Sue's son and our son Scott won the championship of the bag games!  They thought they should have t-shirts that say "Big and Sexy!"

We ended the day at the beach and watched a beautiful sunset!  The end to a perfect day!!

The kids came over today and thought it was pretty neat to harvest all these things from the garden!   Mac dug up the potatoes for us.

After harvesting the crops we baked chocolate chip cookies together.  Nana is losing it!  We forgot to put the salt and soda in the cookies!  They tasted good anyway! lol

Gracie is teaching Nana how to hula hoop!  I didn't do too bad for an old lady!

I've got the 3 year old grandson up for a visit and I am EXHAUSTED.

Thanks Sue, I think you are right about God giving kids to young folks. I sure do get tuckered out too fast! Enjoy your three year old while he is there. We can rest up after their visits!! Nancy

What beautiful and happy photos of you and yours. You are very blessed. We would love to have grandchildren but it is looking more and more like that isn't God's plan for us. Still, you never know. Nice helpers in the garden and great harvest too!

Susan said...

Awesome! I cannot do that like I use to. I am impressed. :D I know you had fun with family and as long as there's sugar in the cookies, all's good. :D What memories...!

What a fun time you appear to be having with your family. Fun that they can enjoy your summer garden harvest bounty too! Love the tomatoes - they look totally yummy!

Lovely family and great pictures...nothing like family time.

Gardens here are still producing too, and we've started planting the fall stuff....

Happy Tuesday!

Hi nutmeg gardener, Yes, we are certainly blessed to have grandchildren! And it is wonderful to be able to send time with them! Hope God gives you some or you fulfil the need of an out of town grandma! Nancy

What a fun family time. Your garden produce is coming along. Fresh from the garden is so good.

Have a wonderful afternoon.

Hi Cheryl, My garden is starting to produce more than we are using now. Even tho it is a small garden it is fun to be able to give some away! Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to stop by! Come again! Nancy

What wonderful things are you pulling gout of your backyard! Everything looks like it is growing well and you are eating the fruits of your labor!)

Go Go Go on you hula hoop. What fun you were having. Great memories!

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Emily, Thanks for visiting! Our little gardens seem to be providing plenty for the two of us and some to give away right now! Sometimes not always the prettiest and that is probably because of the weather. Come again! Nancy

Progress in the Courtyard!

  It was so nice to look out my bedroom window this morning and see the Clematis blooming instead of a pile of snow.  It is a rainy day agai...
