Morning harvest



How I love warm July mornings in the garden : Rainbow Swiss Chards, our first zucchinis, lebanese cucumbers, fresh garden sage for our meal tonight. Lemon verbana, flowering agastache and more calendula to dry for teas and balms. I am grateful for the land that feeds me, the nature that heals me, the crisp morning air that revives me and the warm summer sun that soothes me.

Have a glorious day everyone!

About Yanic A.

Hello to all of you and thank you for stopping by! My name is Yanic. I'm a wife to a wonderful husband, a mother of 2 beautifully complex and unique children and a lover of all things inspiring. Having started a personal journey of self discovery when I found out I was pregnant with my daughter 4 years ago, I've since embraced a daily life of simpler pleasures and gratitude. As we get to know each other, you will know me as a quilter, a gardener, a Tao cultivator, a vegetarian foodie, a true believer in a healthy family life as being the secret to my happiness and hopefully as time goes on, a friend... I will try to share with you my days as they unfold, speaking of my happy successes without censoring my challenges, trying to make this blog a true portrait of the ever-changing path that I have chosen for myself. I'm hoping to find in these pages others to share with and learn from, bringing to light the absolute connection in all things and people, showing this world as being a true community.

      Indeed! I love watching my kids snack directly from the garden while I’m picking. Watching my daughter eat freshly grown green beans at 7am is a beautiful site!


      • How amazing that she will grow up knowing the joy and health of eating straight from the garden! I was lucky enough to enjoy the same – to a lesser extent – when I was young 🙂 my mom’s herb and tomato gardens were so inspiring to me.

        Same here… my mom never had extensive gardens, but always tomatoes, cucumbers and herbs. 🙂

    Looks delicious – I especially love that rainbow chard, I think we might have to try that!

    Wow, your chard looks beautiful! All of ours were eaten by some bug we could not determine.


    • Yanic A. says:

      Our first batch didn’t work at all… we are pretty happy this time around. Our first batch we direct sowed, second batch are transplants. I’m thinking that maybe the season for the bugs that eat them late spring was passed when we replanted in June? Whatever it was, it worked and they just keep producing so YAY! Maybe you should start some in pots and transplant them?


I would love to hear from you so please, take a minute and say hello!
