eat your brussel sprouts

July 8, 2010


They were planted in December. Harvested a couple weeks ago (not cause it took 6 months to grow, but we just waited a long time to pick them!). Just eaten yesterday.

And it tasted really good. Then again, what does Ben make that doesn’t?!! Did you know we dream of owning a farm, not an animal one, but more like a blueberry farm or something of that sort. Yes, dreams are nice…
I feel a bit better about my stressing out and thank you for your putting up with me and sharing happy words that helped make me feel better. I am not going to back out of Renegade (Stephanie and Amy would you like to help?) and my mom’s party will be a blast. I just needed to stress out a bit, but yesterday was a good work day and step by step I will be ready for both. With lots of prayer of course. So pray for me. Plus, I know today will be another good day and the next day will be even better! What do you think?

    never knew how brussel sprouts grew – they look so strange! i have a sneaking suspicion that both they and asparagus are natively from an alien planet.. such odd looking (and oh-so-tasty) veggies!

  • these look amazing. all your gardening photos make me wish that i had outdoor space to grow something – anything.

  • I never get tired of seeing your vegetable pictures! It's like, 'What's going to spring up in Ruby Ellen's backyard next?' Ha ha ha! You're a lucky woman to have Ben cooking for you all the time!

  • First of all, I'm ashamed to say I've never seen brussel sprouts on the plant before! They look so good!!! And secondly… I can totally see your family living the farm life. Some dreams are meant to become reality, you know! You are in my prayers (and my kids' prayers, as we always say them together) tonight!!! xo

    thanks for inspiring all of us with your cute family and great garden family time.

    sometimes you just have to get the stress out of your system, then it's easier to carry on!

    I love brussel sprouts. Always hated them as a kid, but didn't realize until later that if prepared well they are really yummy.
