#MagicMoments – picking strawberries

This week’s Magic Moments is also my 200th post šŸ™‚

As you know we’ve been growing some of our own fruit and vegetables with Monkey.Ā  Our little garden is constantly changing as the various projects grow – tomato plants, courgettes, pumpkins, carrots, parsnips, raspberries and lettuce.

Today Monkey got to pick his first few strawberries – so this is our Magic Moment šŸ™‚

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40ā€²s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school.We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and Iā€™m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds.We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.

  1. I love this. My son has been helping me pick things from our garden and I also now have my daughter wanting to get involved. It’s lovely isn’t it.

    1. My Mum is still in shock that I am involved in this project, but now I can understand why she did what she did with us as kids. I’t great, we have ‘project lettuce’ tomorrow, to see if picking his own will entice him to eat it – fingers crossed!

      1. Well, I started growing things to entice my eldest to try new food. Never worked! She loves planting, picking etc but still won’t eat the bloomin things! She will try fruit to be fair. Fingers crossed it works for you tomorrow.

  2. Congrats on reaching 200! And it’s great to see plants come to fruitition. Our strawberry plant I thought would be failsafe didn’t make it. I’m still not sure how!

  3. Congratulations on your 200th post šŸ™‚ And well done on the strawberries! I can see the beginnings of some cucumbers and peas in our garden – the boys are very excited! #MagicMoments

  4. I think it’s a great idea to grow your own things in the garden and get children involved. Very healthy too! šŸ™‚ Sometimes waiting for things to fully ripen can seem like an eternity though!
