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!
