garden

this year’s garden

We have lots of things growing. Herbs, beans, swiss chard, radishes, red cabbage, cantaloupes, and TOMATOES. My word, do we have tomatoes. We probably pick almost a pint each day!

one day's harvest

These homegrown tomatoes… they are the ones that I ate and enjoyed. That moment when I ate a tomato and enjoyed it… radical and life changing. (To properly understand this, you must realize that for all of my life I’ve despised eating raw tomatoes. No longer!)

morning glories

I always grow morning glories in my herb garden.

Just a few days ago we cut up and ate this cantaloupe.

The taste of homegrown food… there’s nothing better.

^ grass.

i’m so glad mom taught me how to quilt.

and, our garden seems to be doing okay after the big rainstorm we had.   the ground is still rather damp, though, so i didn’t water today.  and i try to miss the mud under the swing when i’m swinging.
