We tried something new this spring. We are getting a weekly veggie box from Grow Alabama. We've talked about it for a while and were wishy-washy about spending the money and wondering if we'd use it all. We finally decided to give it a try in May and we haven't regretted our decision at all. I'm not exaggerating at when I tell you that it is like opening a present every week. It's beautiful and delicious! Take a look.

This was our very first box in May. It was so much fun to open the first box and it's been just as fun every week since! Today we got cherry tomatoes, squash, corn, okra (guess I can cook those two pieces with this - C and T will be thrilled), and blueberries. Last week we had the most amazing cantaloupe. Absolutely delish!
We have so many beautiful heirloom tomatoes coming in from our own garden and the tiniest, most scrumptious tomatoes I've ever seen called Mexico Midgets. Have I mentioned that Conrad eats tomatoes like candy...really, I've never seen anything like it. He has a big sweet tooth like me and if he had to choose I'm not sure if he'd pick a piece of candy or a tomato. I might just have to test it out and see. ;)
So today's happy...a bite of home grown delicious heaven! But who can stop at just one bite! And if you haven't had fresh picked produce lately...stop by the farmer's market and grab a bite...or two...or three.
