The garden is coming in while I am in Mississippi. I am in heaven. I think it has been at least ten years since I have been home to help when the garden comes in. Jessica has been wonderful to watch the kids while I pick. Since Dad’s knee is bothering him, he hasn’t been able to weed like he usually does and the garden is full of weeds, but that hasn’t affected the yield. The peas vines are loaded! We picked a couple of bushels today and will probably have at least that tomorrow afternoon. We are going to sit in front of the television and watch Harry Potter tonight while we shell peas.
This visit has brought back such wonderful memories of my childhood. I have this great desire to have a home in the country so my kids can experience all the wonderful things that I did growing up. Until that happens, I am so thankful that we can go home to Mississippi.
