Sharing the Harvest

I didn't harvest too much from the garden this past week. Our fridge is still packed with greens brought in from the week before, and sometimes the best place to store your veggies is in the ground.

Yesterday our friends Sarah and Doug came to visit us for Jonathan's 4th birthday party. Sarah writes her own blog called "The Gaga Diaries," documenting her first pregnancy and adventures as new mother. I was able to send them home with a bag filled with goodies. As we toured the garden, we picked a nice bouquet of Swiss chard and Red Russian kale, as well as some Napoli carrots, American Flag leeks, Hungarian Wax peppers and herbs. It's always nice to share your homegrown produce with friends who are equally as passionate about food as you are.

This upcoming week's harvest should be a bountiful one. The broccoli is looking absolutely fantastic this year!


  1. It's so nice sharing your harvest with those who appreciate it!

    Boy, the little one is a cutie pie!

  2. Great photo! Happy Birthday to Jonathan!

  3. Good times with good food and good friends. Does it get any better than this?

  4. I think one of the best parts ABOUT gardening is being able to share it with others. The chard and leeks are so beautiful!!
