Garden hand

All spring we've been harvesting lettuce, spinach, arugula, sugar snap peas, radishes, and strawberries. Now we're starting to eat the Walla Walla sweets and can't keep up with the raspberries.

Actually, we enjoy keeping up just fine. Today I picked two dry pints of berries, with help of course, although all the berries Wyatt picks get eaten rather than put in the container. Eaten or offered to grandpa if he's around. Or the cat. Oggy doesn't care for berries much so Wyatt always eats his too.

It's fun to see Wyatt pick his own snap peas and eat them pods and all, pull up a radish, or pull off ripe berries and pop them in his mouth. Today Wyatt pronounced an unripe berry that he ate as "ick" so I think he's figuring it out.

We'll have shelling peas, more raspberries, and hot peppers and tomatoes soon. Can't wait to see Wyatt try those.

I cannot believe we got so busy on the morning of our departure that I forgot to go down and check out the garden! I guess it will have to wait until the next visit.
