Today on the Farm

We got up bright and early and headed to the farm this morning to tend the garden.  

We spent a marvelous 3 hours picking veggies, taking pictures, eating melon and making sure everything was growing.  

This year we have been very lucky that the groundhogs haven't eaten everything.  With that luck comes a ton of veggies because we usually plant extra since the groundhogs eat most of it... 

Anyway here is a peek at what we picked today.  Minus the other 8 gallons of tomatoes and several gallons of edamame...  soon to be sauce for the winter and blanched for freezing, respectively.

The garden is a ton of work but is fun to watch grow and even better to eat.  I love knowing where my food comes from.

Please leave me comments about your garden, any tips, your favorite thing to grow, your favorite CSA, why you love local food.

Eat Your Veggies!


  1. Looks super yummy and love the picture of Emily eating Cantalope, which is soooooo great for them considered the best melon in terms of all of the nutritional things it offers. This wonder fruit is highly concentrated with excellent levels of beta-carotene, folic acid, potassium, vitamin C and dietary fiber. It is also one of the very few fruits that has a high level of vitamin B complex¾B1 (thiamine), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid), and B6 (pyridoxine).

    Cantaloupe is rich in anti-oxidants that can help prevent cancer and heart diseases.

  2. Marisa! I found your blog because Colleen posted in on FB. So cool! You are a good blogger and these are gorgeous photos. I'm a wanna -be gardener. How would you feel about letting us tag along on some gardening this fall or next spring? Maybe I could bb-sit for you in exchange. . . - Stephanie
