Weekly Photo Challenge: Reward

There is always a risk to planting a garden….but when there is success, the reward can be pretty sweet!

A few tomatoes, and romaine lettuce, fresh from my garden.

So tell me…what does reward mean to you?

Have a great week! 🙂

    I have Spring fever and Soooo looking forward to planting a garden again this year. A bounty of tomatoes last year was a huge reward. Sue

      Well, I hope you don’t have to wait much longer for Spring to come to you 🙂 I love tomatoes! It’s always an adventure in my garden. Thanks for stopping by Sue, hope to see you again soon!

  2. After retiring as a result of depression last year I found it very therapeutic to begin tackling my garden. I put in some raised beds and this year I am going to grow some sad vegetables, thanks for the inspiration!!

      You’re welcome! 🙂 I too have found that working in my garden is very good therapy. I think it’s a combination of things, digging in the soil, the smells of the flowers, herbs and plants, and the reward when you are successful. I’m looking forward to seeing the “fruits of your labor” 🙂

    That is quite a reward. And congratulations that you got it before the squirrels did!

      Ahh, thanks Nancy! No squirrels here, but…we do have raccoons and possums, skunks, and rats …and after a summer where they got to my fruit and vegetables before I could, I was about ready to give it all up…but then my wonderful husband built me an enclosed garden, with raised beds. Success! Those little critters can’t get in my garden now 🙂 Not nearly as frustrating, that’s for sure.
      Always fun to hear from you Nancy, thanks for stopping by!

    Congrats on harvesting such healthy looking veggies. A truly great reward (because gardening can be pretty hard work) – well done on your success. Hope the reward tasted as good as it looked 🙂

    Your post made me smile. I’ve got veggies in my reward picture too! 🙂
    I love that gardening gives both the intangible and tangible (tasty too) in the way of rewards.

    • Becky says:

      I couldn’t agree with you more! I think sometimes the reward for me is found more in the time I spend in the garden, than the actual things produced from the garden. It’s very relaxing, and calming for me. Something I have come to treasure. 🙂

  6. I don’t know about you, but the taste of fresh veg from the garden is so much better. Part of the reward I guess.

    • Becky says:

      Thanks Ben – I’m pretty sure that’s what keeps me coming back to gardening 🙂 Some of the rest of the stuff that goes with it could be a little discouraging if it weren’t for a successful product when it’s all said and done!
      Thanks for stopping by – hope to hear from you again!

  7. We love our garden (although my hubby is the gardener, not me) but of course, we can only enjoy the produce from it for a short while. Have to wait for harsh winter to be gone, can’t plant until frosts are gone in spring and then harvest comes mostly in summer and early fall. Enjoy your bounty!

    • Becky says:

      Well I applaud you for even trying to have a garden! I’m not sure I would be, or could be as patient 🙂 I’m pretty sure I’m a little spoiled by the weather where I live!

  8. Wonderful take on the theme!
