rhubarb1
rhubarb2
rhubarb3
rhubarb4
rhubarb5
we have a baby rhubarb patch! grant's grandma (the expert gardener) not only told us that this was the week to transplant rhubarb, she gave us three sprouts from her own garden. thank you, marian! she also told us that the rhubarb will be okay by itself while we're at camp all summer. it's hardy enough and doesn't require much babysitting. woohoo!
we won't have anything eatable for a couple of years, but i don't even care. there's something growing in our backyard (other than grass)! and good news: yesterday, it rained. grow little rhubarb, grow!

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
