|Sweet three-year-old hands holding his favorite things.|
|Will with a green zebra, he ate it all, his face was covered in green zebra juice...|
|Ian is such a ham...even covered in tomatoes and dirt.|
|The thrill of the hunt.|
I had to share pictures of them in the tomato patch this morning. This time they brought their little camping chairs with them. The chairs strap to their backs and make a great place to relax and gobble up the tomatoes that they gathered.
|Talk about raid...this is what Will took...and ate...all of it!!!|
I love watching their little chubby fingers pluck the sweet little tomatoes. I love how the juice runs down their chins and all over their clean clothes. I am in love with my children being in love with the garden! This is what life is all about for me...watching these boys grow into healthy and knowledgeable men, capable of doing this same thing for their children one day. One can only hope that the knowledge they are gaining, they will use and pass on to their families. My grandpa taught me to eat from the garden. He used to keep an old metal salt shaker in the garden, so he could salt the big red hunks of tomato that he sliced for me with his pocket knife. I cherish those moments that I spent with him in the garden. Those are some of my fondest memories. I hope that these boys of mine have some of those same memories in our garden.
I LOVE THESE TOMATO THEIVES!!!
