Harmony was making an amish cheesburger soup recipe the other day and needed some ingredients from the garden beds. The list was carrots, onions, and parsley. She asked if we had any parsley and I said we did. We headed out to the garden area to get our veggies for the soup. First the carrots....easy enough!! Big tub full of carrots washed and harvested......then the green onions......also easy enough.....then on to the parsley. Harmony asked where it was and I pointed down to the grassy path in between two beds and said "there it is." She looked at me like I was crazy, but often times after I finish seeding a row or two I will toss the extra seed onto the garden paths..........this has taken somewhat of its own personality!!! As we were harvesting parsley out of the garden path, Kade walked up and asked "what in the world are you guys doing?." We proceeded to explain to him that we were harvesting parsley......he chipped in after registering that it was not a weed or grass that we were picking. The garden paths have taken on a new roll though, with patches of mustard, cilantro, parsley and random lettuce and dill plants popping up here and there!!! Its like cheating the system.....harvesting from places that weren't slated for plants!!!! Oh and by the way, the parsley and the soup were delicious!!!!
Dylan and Harmony, whichever of us have the time to sit down and write for a few minutes. : )
