Is This Heaven?

No, it's Iowa.

Well, not really of course. We haven't moved. But the way these two little girls are SO PROUD of the corn they are growing, you'd think we had our own "Field of Dreams" in our garden. They go out and check it every day to see how much it has grown. They water it, frisk it, measure it, and get down on all fours to inspect the earth around it. Corn on the cob is by far Megan and Molly's favorite vegetable. I'm not kidding when I say they can each put away 3 or 4 ears in one sitting. (I think it's genetic, their Iowa born father is the same way.) So they can't wait for the day they actually get to pick - and eat! - the corn they have grown!

We also had an early crop of strawberries that the girls picked yesterday. They were SO SWEET! Hopefully we get more as the summer goes on.

That's awesome. I remember growing carrots with my dad when I was about Megan's age. Hope you get LOTS of sweet corn!
