We went to a farmers market this summer and I snapped a few shots of the produce. The colors are so amazing! Makes me want to grow vegetables! I've tried...they don't look like these...but my Sister In Law ( better known as SIL) has the gardening thing so figured out. Check this out...
This is only a little glimpse of her garden...her veggies would look just like the ones above. Maybe better, yes, a lot better. She is busy during the harvest...lots to freeze, can and pickle. I wouldn't be so busy...none to freeze, can or pickle! Oh...I'm not feeling sorry for myself...no, not at all. I'm just amazed at the folks that have the ability to grow such wonderful produce. What's really amazing are the farmers that farm acres and acres of produce...the ones that feed the world. My sister is married to one of those, a wheat farmer. A very good one. And my other sister doesn't have acres and acres, but you should see her containers. She would make Sisco Morris proud! (famous Northwest gardener, if your not from here!) More people to be amazed by... So to all of you good crop growing types...why is it that my lambs ears have holes in them and my lace leaf maple lost all of it's leaves already and my toffee colored ornamental grass has woolly aphids in it? There is one thing that I do seem to grow well these days...
Welcome! I am an artist who lives a simple life on a beautiful Island in the Pacific Northwest where God's creation inspires my creativity.
