I started this blog when my son was just a little fella and it is hard to believe he is now 16!! So I wanted to do a little throwback with some of my favorite Ebear memories over the years.
The first cucumber we grew and harvested was so exciting. I couldn't wait to eat it, but he just looked at me in horror and said We can't eat him! He is Roy E. Boy! Yes, he named it. Then he proceeded to carry it around until it was going bad. He took that cucumber everywhere from his grandparents to out to eat with us.
He always loved to cook and come up with his own recipes using up our little garden harvests in the most delightful ways.
He was also creative in how we would plant our fruits and veggies. Case in point is this lively pea tower complete with all kinds of little toys to get lost in the jungle.
He even loved to share the delight of gardening with others.
I know that the time for all our garden fun is on pause if not lost all together. He is a teenager and those activities simply aren't cool anymore (nor am I). I understand, but it still tugs at my heart. I know he will continue to grow (though he towers over me as is), his voice will get deeper, and before long he will move out and leave. I can only hope that one day he will come back to visit and perhaps join me in the garden.
What is your favorite gardening memory and who was it with?
