nelle...my dad's right hand dog & garden mascot
My dad is a retired art teacher. He is also an amazing organic gardener and has a wonderful garden, or small farm, as we prefer to call it. My father has always been my greatest influence and inspiration when it comes to the arts and I am now following in his footsteps in the art teaching field. Gardening however...not so much my forte. Lucky for me, my father's garden is huge and bursting with plenty of home grown goodies to share! This summer, as most, he has been very fortunate to have harvested so many brilliant vegetables. Each week I get the call, email, or even a text, with the "weekly specials". A few weeks ago I stopped by my parent's house to pick up my weekly produce and decided to help with the harvest. I was on my way to spend the weekend with friends, so I was sure to take lots of extra goodies, as my friends also know to put in their farm requests from my dad's garden. Nothing beats local, organically grown produce. I did take a few photos while I was there. Some on my
i-phone and some with my new Diana camera. I am still trying to master the Diana camera, but I am really beginning to like the results!
can you believe how tall this sunflower is?
nelle always stays on the garden paths...amazing!
My bounty the week I was there consisted of broccoli, tomatoes, basil, parsley, eggplant, yellow squash, zucchini, cabbage, garlic (dried and ready to use), corn, zinnias, and sunflowers. Excellent ♥
