Saturday gardening

Last March, I started talking about my excitement for a garden in my new home. 
My son and I chose what to plant yesterday.  He chose strawberries. 
I selected herbs like basil, mint, sage, and cilantro. 

Although it took a while to construct this plant bed, I enjoyed
 feeling the dirt and seeing the sun slowly come up.  

My son was in charge of the bricks.  He was a great little helper indeed. 

I will to see how this turns out and then consider planting some more. 

Finally, I enjoyed some crispy and sweet jicama. 
 Jicama is basically a sweet turnip.
Added a bit of lemon juice and cayenne pepper for a little kick.
So fresh and delicious.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
