Today was a beautiful winter’s day.  The temperature was a little above normal for this time of year. 

We spent time out in the garden today with our granddaughter, Lily.

I spent time harvesting leaf lettuce, radishes, carrots and cauliflower for our dinner salad.

 I used our bounty to make a delicious salad for dinner.
The only thing from the grocery store in our salad was the cucumbers, which aren’t in season until summer.
As I was picking the vegetables earlier today, Lily was busy picking something entirely different…


She absolutely loves to pick up rocks. 
Thankfully, she doesn’t like to eat them 😉

    hahaha, i love this fun post. Sometimes when they are younger they put everything they pick to their mouth, i guess Lily has outgrown that. I love the color of your fresh salad.
