this year’s garden

a day in the life, food, photos

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.
