Growing my own food is truly one of the most rewarding things to me, so when I saw that the subject for this week’s photo challenge was reward, I immediately thought of my vegetable garden. Of course, it’s the dead of winter here at the moment, so I had to pull a photo from my archives, hope that isn’t cheating. 😉
A few rewards from my garden this past summer…
Such a refreshing treat on a hot summer day! Yes quite rewarding! 😀
Of course, in the winter, the prices for ‘fresh’ veggies at the store are anything but rewarding, it’s absolutely ridiculous how expensive just one organic cucumber is! I can’t wait until I can get back out in my garden and grow my own.
Alas, it will be a long while before it’s warm enough here to grow cucumbers or anything else. And… growing them is one thing, harvesting them is another, so it will be an even longer while before I’ll be able to enjoy any of my own homegrown veggies. Sigh… But hey, that makes it all the more rewarding, right?
One thing that is starting to grow here right now is my spring fever. Yep, that is definitely growing. 😉
I am striving for contentment though. If those two words together don’t completely contradict each other haha!
Happy Monday, may your week be filled with much reward, with contentment, and with…
✿~Peace & Love~✿
