Vegetable Abundance

All summer long we harvested veggies from the garden for our supper. The tomatoes were especially prolific. As friends and family came to visit we shared our bounty both in meals and sacks to take home. My sisters' children loved picking corn, beans and tomatoes. They were delighted to dig in the soft dirt to loosen and pull out the crazy carrots.

On one visit Lisette set up the saw horses, artfully displayed her pickins, and created an invitation for each adult to the vegetable festival. We each took a basket and filled it up with veggies. Payment was made in the form of filberts. "That will be twenty filberts please." No problem. This form of money actually does grow on trees.

Emma and I are on our way out to the garden to harvest all of the green tomatoes to make salsa verde -- extra spicy, due to the amount of jalapeños available!
