Reaping The Rewards

My dear son-in-law's garden is producing it's bounty, this is just a small selection of his plantings.
He has become quite the gardener.

" To own a bit of ground, to scratch it with a hoe, to plant seeds and watch their renewal of life - this is the commonest delight of the race, the most satisfactory thing a man can do."

~ Charles Dudley Warner, author, editor, publisher (1829 - 1900)

A truly beautiful selection of good, healthy food. Looks yummy.

I'm beginning to think home gardens are becoming a necessary way of life again in this terrible economy we're dealing with.

Sharon said...

What great crops already. Yum!

Denise said...

I would be very proud of that crop!

Chip "Rocket Man" Allen said...

Absolutely nothing better than garden fresh produce!

Deb said...

Oh, I could just dive right into that. Especially tomatoes fresh from the garden.

DJan said...

Wow! Way to make me jealous, Jo. I just spent a fortune on greens but couldn't have afforded that spread without taking out a loan! :-)

George said...

Home-grown vegetables are absolutely the best. It looks like a lot of good eating is coming from that garden.

Babs said...

Love those beautiful tomatoes and peppers and OKRA. Wish I had planted okra. Are you going to fry it?

Terry said...

Very nice.

Jo ~ Are those banana peppers I spy? When they
are sweet, they are delicious, but when hot....
tooooooo hot..Even our
produce man cannot tell the
difference except to taste
one...Have often brought
home and cooked a batch of
hot surprises.... Would love
to find the seeds for the
sweet. Bravo to the gardener of that beautiful

They are sweet banana peppers not hot.
I'll ask the SIL where he got his seeds and let you know.
