If you enjoy vegetable gardening, you might enjoy taking a stroll with me.
Things are coming along nicely. I really start to enjoy my garden come mid-July. The plants have filled out enough to crowd out most of the weeds (I tend to cram in more plants than I really have room for.) and the harvesting begins in earnest.
The pleasure it is to pick a small bowl of raspberries to top my morning oatmeal, or clipping a handful of greens for a smoothie or stir-fry.
Or the joy it is to spy the first red tomato of the season.
A little celebration in itself!
Don't you think these tomatillos are beautiful? Delicate and papery, they remind me of Chinese lanterns.
I wonder what it would look like if I shined a flashlight through them in the dark?
Yes, so much beauty and goodness in this little corner of my home. And I can't think of anything more rewarding or fulfilling than growing and harvesting my own food.
A garden is a delight in so many ways. Thanks for letting me share it all with you today!
