Our first garden harvest of the season.

Well, this weekend Jack worked so hard on his garen, planting, and pulling weeds and thinning, mowing the lawn and such. He loved every minute of it. Well he was so proud of his lettuce crop and being able to save it from the bunnies, that I wanted to surprise him and make a salad with some of it and added roasted chicken breast, grape tomatoes and a sprinkling of shredded cheddar cheese, for color. I then sprinkled them with cracked pepper, opened a bottle of red wine and sliced a crusty loaf of bread to go along with it. We sat on the front porch at the table and enjoyed the "bounty" from his garden.

Don't you know his chest was puffed out a bit and he was so happy with the salads that he asked me to take a picture of them and send them to his brother Scott. Now this is funny but the two of them only 2 yrs apart are always competitive about their gardens. When we go on vacations the two of them bring their harvests trying to out do the other. lol Boys! They really never do grow up. Anyway, they love the challenge and the prodding and poking at eachother. It's pretty funny to sit back and listen to the two of them. My sister in law and I just smile and shake or heads. I love them. :)
