eat your vegetables.

You are just dying to see the fruits {and veggies} of my labor, are you not???? Yes, I am so proud, I take pictures of my potatoes ... and my tomatoes. Why?, You ask ... because I worked my booty off to take care of them. Kind of like parenting, I assume. While parents give up their sleep, their strength, and a great portion of their lives for their children, I give up those few extra hours in bed with my hubs, much of my strength {and my once soft hands}, and most of my Saturday mornings to these vegetables. THEREFORE, since parents take pictures of their pride and joys {being their children}, I take pictures of my zucchini. Make sense?? I thought so.

SO, you are more than welcome to enjoy this simple image of the food I get to eat. :)

This is about a sixteenth of the potatoes I have dug up from the dirt. My grandpa says this is the family lifeline ... therefore, I am not allowed to share.

I say T-O-M-A-Y-T-O, you say T-O-M-O-T-O
and i also say FREE!!

The larger the zucchini, the less flavor ... yes, I get that. HOWEVER, this rather large piece of
v-e-g-e-t-a-b-l-e was quite marvelous.

Fresh fruit salad, home-grown, 100% YUM.
Peaches, Blackberries, and Balsamic (ok, I lied, I didn't grow the balsamic)

no you are not crazy. this is not a picture of a fruit or vegetable. THIS is a picture of hundreds of young adults worshiping the ONE AND ONLY Lord in a parking lot in the heart of downtown Sacramento. It was an incredible thing to be a part of ... the streets were echoing with voices proclaiming the Almighty One's LOVE. EPIC EXPERIENCE, hence, I had to share.
