Andrew (age 6) is very excited about the salad we are going to have with dinner tonight because he picked a bunch of the ingredients. In addition to lettuce, we will be adding the pea pods, garlic chives, and alpine strawberries Andrew picked. I love how having a garden makes my kids eat things they probably wouldn’t if I had bought it from a store.
Mine have been shelling peas all week and they have 1) not lost enthusiasm for the chore and 2) been eating fresh raw peas with delight.
Lovely fixins for a great salad! Those alpine strawberries look very delicious. I am waiting for my strawberries to start ripening (some warmer weather would help in that department) but am looking forward to eating them in and on everything – including fresh salads.
Cute little Strawberries! I’m regretting not starting strawberries, seems everyone has some this year!
