Fun Finds For Mom

Edible Garden Tour

For the first time in my life, I feel like a gardener. This year, I signed up for the “gardening ” job at the preschool, and with the help of our class of 4 and 5 year olds, lots of parents, teachers, my dad, Singh Farms and Baker Nursery (now I’m sounding like I won an Academy Award) we have a happy, thriving garden with tomatoes (yellow and red, big and small), green beans, cucumber (singular), squash, and a green pepper.

I’m looking forward to being inspired by people in my neighborhood who have turned their yards into home farms. The Arcadia Edible Garden Tour will be held Sunday, May 15 from 9 – noon, and you can sign up here. Happy gardening! (Are you growing anything edible at your home? Share your stories with a comment!)

Don’t you love the image above? It reminds me of the vintage labels I have framed in my kitchen.
