Garden Blogs I Dig
My father-in-law is our family’s veggie-growing guru. I tend to focus more on herbs and a tomato plant or two. But Grandpa Dave has been tending to a vegetable garden for over 50 years, starting around age 15! This year his garden is full of onions, cucumbers, peppers and tomatoes big and small.
This is the most recent harvest he sent home with us. We had the best BLT sandwiches for dinner last night – yum! This is the only time of the year I eat tomatoes. I don’t bother with store bought (gassed) tomatoes that are tasteless and either hard as a rock or a mushy mess – gross!
We’re really looking forward to these pumpkins Grandpa Dave planted for our son to carve jack-o’-lanterns with this Halloween. They’re coming right along and should be ripe n’ ready come October.
Check out these huge sunflowers. Dave says their tallest one he’s ever grown, topping 13 feet!
I’m thankful we have someone in the family with the space, the patience and the know-how to grow delicious organic foods. I’m glad he’s willing to pass on his knowledge……and that he shares!!
