Last harvest

This growing season was a lot of things. Challenging, delicious and frustrating are the three adjectives that come quickly to my mind. Getting to our plots with a baby was difficult. Going out there without the baby was a logistical issue. However, when we did make it, it was nice. The food we grew was delicious, and I enjoyed being able to harvest vegetables that I (somewhat) nurtured to fruition. The plot may have eventually turned into a mass of weeds, but we had a garden this summer. And that is a win.

The popcorn is dried and waiting to be shucked:


And that’s a wrap.
