I remember going to Grandma's farm house when I was little and helping in the garden. Grandma liked to keep us kids busy. We would shell the pea's and pull carrots for what felt like hours! (I am sure though it was probably closer to half an hour) The days were hot at the farm, and we would have to be sprayed from head to toe with mosquito repellent but we loved our time there. There was a lot of land and a lot of house for us to run around in. In the evenings we would all gather as a family in the dinning room and eat. My favorite dessert that grandma would make always had rhubarb. Now my kids are helping Grandy in the garden and still my favorite summer dessert is Lazy Rosy Rhubarb.

(so good and SO easy! trust me.)
