This weekend we llved on vegetables from the garden: potatoes and onions, zucchini and green beans, cucumbers and basil. These were supplemented by a few store-bought veggies, primarily mushrooms and multi-colored carrots which taste kind of parsnippy, a little pasta, and some excellent silver salmon donated by the serious fisherman next door. It was all wonderful.
The zucchini came from the wheelbarrow at left in the picture, catching the long rays of the late-afternoon sun The basil came out of the little raised bed in the middle, and everything else from the big bed behind it where red and purple dahlias are sticking their heads up.
The weather was ideal this weekend, too, with cool and misty mornings giving way to warm sunshine by 11 a.m. or so. If this isn't heaven, it's got to be right close by.
