Digging Potatoes for Dinner

Cara loves the garden. She likes to pull weeds, dig in the dirt, and harvest. Tonight, daddy asked her if she wanted to help dig potatoes for dinner and, of course, she said, "Yes!" So off they went and I tagged along behind with the camera.

They dug two hills for mashed potatoes to go along with the ham and fresh corn. Then they thought homemade jalapeno poppers would be a good appetiser.

Cara looking down the strawberry row trying to decide if they needed to be picked again. She went ahead and picked 2-3 cups, but she probably could have waited another day or two.

Don't you just love the ladybug gardening boots? :)

  1. I do love the boots! We always had a huge garden and a bin of sand in the basement to keep potatoes, etc., through the winter. This post brings back a lot of memories.
