Pico De Gallo Recipe

There is nothing more satisfying this time of year than having a garden grow.  By your own two hands, you’ve worked the land, nurtured and cared for it.  Now, the garden is growing lavishly, and giving back of all it’s received.

However, I can think of one thing that could, quite possibly, be more rewarding than this.  Walking out to the garden with a basket! (of course being thankful for the bounty you are about to receive).  And moreover, being thankful for recipes like this, that allow you to implement those, oh so wonderful, home-grown delectable.

Let’s Take a walk in the garden..

DIY Raised Garden Beds

DIY Raised Garden Beds

The time has come to share some of what we’ve been doing …

The temperatures here still seem to dip below freezing at night.  And our little sprouts are ready to be planted.  But they will fair far better in our mudroom than outside in the cold cold night air.  As we wait for the temperatures to rise so we can plant our little gems of goodness, we still have plenty of work ahead of us preparing the gardens.

This year we’ve chosen to do raised beds.  As the collector of fine junk and the purveyor of needless necessities, I have just such an item to meet the needs of these projects.

Earth Day

In keeping it GREEN, we are doing our annual planting of the family garden and taking in all the great things Mother Nature has to offer.  Recently it was Earth Day (April 23, 2011), but for us it has been a month (if not decades) of Earth Day.

In addition to the many DIY garden projects and home-school science projects we have going, Earth ‘month’ has pulled it all together into one nice neat little package.

Annual Farming Day

The Annual Farming Day was April 12th.  Alright, you may or may not have known that.  But I’m here to tell you, that I think it’s a wonderful opportunity for everyone to get in touch with Mother Nature.

Now, if you missed out on the event, it’s ok!  You will have another opportunity coming up….  Earth Day is April 22, 2011.
