So, Ben reminded me that I’ve been talking about fresh veggies for months now and have yet to give you proof that I’m actually harvesting this fruit of the earth. So, I thought I would dedicate one post to pictures of Ben’s parents garden, my main source of produce. It’s no longer peak of season, so don’t mind the brown, crinkled leaves and spiraling weeds. None the less, it still stands as an earthly beauty, and I hope you love it as much as I do!
