abundant living

Last night we enjoyed a family dinner outside on
the front patio. The crowning touch to the meal
was our home-grown corn-on-the-cob.

Sky has had a garden each Spring for
several years, and the harvest is usually only
one or two plants each year..the rest a scene of deadly dryness and disappointment.

This year was the best year ever, great success with many plants. We've had several salads from different lettuces he has planted, a bumper crop of tomatoes-different kinds, even green
tomatoes;great for saute-ing with olive oil and putting on blt sandwiches. We've got onions for fresh salsa, our own garlic, asparagus, artichokes,
green beans (the little kids like them raw),
strawberries, raspberries, squash, pumpkins
and of course corn.

We decided last night that
we need to find more space for more corn....

I am truly amazed out how much food we got this year from our little garden. We are thinking that next year, if we stagger plantings, we can get
much more. And it all tastes so wonderful, even
the lettuce was better. I felt like Ma Ingalls, going out to the garden to cut lettuce for our salad.
