# Gardening with kids
Colorful carrots from the garden
A bunch of colorful, crunchy and delicious carrots grown on a pot in our backyard garden. Colorful rainbow carrots are fun to grow and eat especially with kids. We harvested a bunch and ate them fresh or raw the other night for our St. Patrick's dinner.
Freshly-picked berries and mint on crème brulee
Some berry pickings on my second most favorite dessert - CREME BRULEE. This elegant French dessert is surprisingly easy to make. The ingredients: 3 cups of heavy cream, five eggs, half cup sugar and a teaspoon vanilla extract. Forty minutes on a 300°F pre-heated oven, then on to the fridge for at least a couple of hours. A sprinkle of turbinado sugar caramelized with a kitchen blowtorch, then topped with mint and berries from the garden - blueberries, raspberries and boysenberries.
Colorful backyard harvest for dinner
Gardening with kids is loads of fun! Come join me and Josh harvest some vegetables and fruits from our backyard garden for dinner. We have chioggia beetroot, Parisian carrots, freckled lettuce, Nagami kumquats, Valencia orange, broccoli, potatoes and teeny tiny radishes. Let's pick some flowers too, chamomile and nasturtiums. They are edible flowers, but let's put them on the vase this time and then lit a candle. Dinner is served!
