A Garden of Plenty

Our garden is doing much better this year than last year. Last night Aidan and I picked about two dozen tomatoes. There is another dozen waiting to be picked today. Our pumpkin plant has six good sized pumpkins on it. Our corn produced many fat, sweet ears and the squash plant has been given us a steady supply of delicious crockneck squash all summer. I love the abundance of food our garden has produced this year, though I’m not really sure what we did that made it so verdant and plentiful. It’s nice to work the garden though and feel the soil in your fingers and the warm sun on your neck. And I love seeing the fruit of a summer long labor be so copious and delicious.
