I always feel a little bittersweet this time of year.
When I have to say farewell to a season of vegetable garden growth. The fruits of my labor planted, taken close care of, watched over, and picked for meals and quick lunches.
When Olivia and I picked the last beautiful green bell pepper from our vegetable patch, I felt compelled to capture its untampered with simplicity. Organic beauty.
There is nothing like the smell of a garden veggie. At least 2 times a week, I make myself a "chop up every veggie I've got on hand" for lunch, with a one cup of cooked Hodgson Mill whole wheat spiral pasta. I feel like it keeps me healthy and nourished.
I kept the veggie garden very simple this year.
We had tomatoes, husky cherry tomatoes, yellow summer squash, broccoli, green peppers, and hot peppers. I learned what worked the best - cherry tomatoes and green peppers. I learned what I got the most use out of. I learned that I would prefer growing green zucchini next summer instead of yellow summer squash. I learned that the prairie bunnies like to eat my broccoli. This years vegetable garden experience will dictate what I will plan for next year. It's been a long week. I'm happy the rejuvenating weekend is here - I need to get out and about something awful.
And just because I am very much loving making photo mosaics...
