Our first fruits…

My little Lexi had the honor of tasting our first ripe raspberry June 29th.  Kira had the first blackberry from our first blackberry bush.   We are excited to have fruit growing in our own backyard.  I may be more so, and I try to encourage the rest of my family in my excitement too.  Why did i wait so long??!!   I just had this fear that I couldn’t do it, any of it.  I didn’t want to put the time into learning to grow anything in the past b/c I just thought I couldn’t do it, wouldn’t be able to keep up with it.  It wasn’t so much a lack of available space, but a feeling of defeat.  I’m so thankful to God for the stamina to pursue the desires of my heart, to which I hope and pray are that which He desires for me also.

Along with the berries, I have strawberries growing in containers and doing very well.  There are some berries growing among the patch as well.   If there were one thing I could rave about the summer, it’s the environment for which such a sweet image could prosper.  I will enjoy the harvest season.
