From the Earth came dinner. August 2012.
One of the many reasons I love coming to my in-laws every summer is spending time in and enjoying the harvest of their beautiful garden. I've always wanted a garden of my own and being here I can live that dream out a little bit.
Pulling weeds. Digging potatoes. Picking peas. Tugging carrots. Slapping mosquitoes. It's a farm life! And I love it so much.
Tonight's dinner came almost entirely from the garden. Although I've never really had my own, I can imagine that's a pretty awesome feeling. Taking something you've grown and feeding your family with it. So poetic. So beautiful. And I'm so glad I got to be a part of that.
If you have a garden, what is your favorite thing to grow? I think I'd enjoy growing tomatoes the most. There isn't anything quite like a tomato fresh from the garden.
Tender of the garden. Hard at work.
Gorgeous garden and pictures. James is the tomato king in this house, but I like growing cabbage and carrots a whole lot... such pretty colors and so easy :) enjoy your trip!ReplyDelete
As you know, I'm a farm girl too. Raised growing our own food, vegetables, fruit, and animals. When you were a toddler, I had a huge garden, where you would "help" me pull weeds, water and mostly play. You really seemed to enjoy being outside and getting your hands in the dirt.ReplyDelete
I hope in the future, you will have the opportunity to have a small garden to enjoy. Even a few containers for your deck to
plant tomatoes are worth the effort. ENJOY! XO
I'd really love to have a fresh herb garden, but I'm afraid we are more skilled with killing plants than keeping them alive.ReplyDelete
