Garden gnomb Hug June 2014 SNAG-0001Didn’t you hug your Gnome before putting him in your garden?

1st Harvest From Garden June 2014 SNAG-0003Rhema’s First Harvest!

Rhema was so excited to get her little basket and go pick some of her vegetables!  We had only 1 green bean that was ready, but we had one large cucumber and then two squash ready to be picked.  Rhema loved putting them into her basket and then showing them off to her daddy, Papa and Gida!  She would pick them each up and kiss them and put them back in her basket.  LOL!

1st cucumber garden June 2014 SNAG-0008We took our one big cucumber, named Larry for obvious reasons (Larry the Cucumber from Veggie Tales), and shared him with our church family!

“Larry” was added into this delicious pasta veggie salad that we took to our church’s pot-luck on Sunday!  Everyone loved our salad and we made sure to tell them that it was Rhema’s cucumber that made it extra special!
