Gorgeous Harvest

One of the reasons why I love gardening is that I love to share the harvests with friends and family.  I went to see my parents last week and I brought with me this gorgeous bounty.  Don't you just love the colors?  I still get giddy knowing that I grew all of this.  I do.  I mean, I only started gardening last year, so it's kinda funny to me that I actually grew garlic, eggplant, peppers, tomatoes, carrots, and green beans, and all from seed, (clove for garlic).  It just brings a smile to my face whenever I harvest, that I can actually grow food, it's kinda comical to me.   I guess I find it funny because it's like I'm in on a funny little secret.  That I can grow fresh organic produce and it won't break the bank.  Heehee.  I love the expression on my parents face when they saw the variety of veggies that are coming out of my little garden, and I think I saw them chuckle as well. It's like they are in on the joke too.  I think they are just as amazed as I am that I can garden with such amazing results and actually grow food!  Haha.  For the first time EVER, I haven't had to buy vegetables all summer long!  For some reason that makes me laugh out loud!  Heeheehee.  It is awesome!

  2. Congrats! As always, quite inspiring. I hope to have the same result next summer! Also plan to start a bit of fall/winter harvest next week.

  4. I've been growing veggies for years and still get that feeling! It totally amazes me that I can grow so much of what I eat, and I eat a LOT of veggies. Keep up the great work.

  6. Ah you sound giddy with your discovery! It is wonderful each and every year you garden. The garden has its own ways about it, one year lots of cukes and the next year lots of something else. It is a wonderful thing.
