A Trip to the Country

John and I took a drive to the country on Sunday to pick some veggies! One of John's coworkers has a large garden and way too many vegetables for his family to eat!

We are rookies at this and managed to get eaten alive by bugs, but had a good time anyway. We were able to pick green beans, kale, broccoli, squash, cabbage, green peppers, and tomatoes. In hindsight, I should have taken a picture of our gargage refrigerator as it was stuffed with bags of veggies. In about a week or so the cantaloupe and watermelon will be ready and he has a big pumpkin patch started for the fall.

They say it always tastes better picked right out the garden, and I would have to agree. This week we've had fresh corn on the cob, fried green tomatoes, squash and zucchini for dinner. Yum-O!

How wonderful to have all that fresh produce. My DIL has container gardening down to a science and we're also having good eats.
