How does your garden grow? (Or, Why my neighborhood is awesome.)

Today I picked these:

Then I arranged to barter some tomatoes for these:

But the best part was that when I was heading out the door, the Young Men/Young Women (my church's local youth group) knocked on the door and asked to do some service as part of a service scavenger hunt.

So I gave them the tomatoes, they brought back the eggs. I hope they won.

Now, before the week is out, I shall make soup out of the tomatoes, and puree the peaches and raspberries for my mom to make into jam.

Gardens are freaking awesome, you guys.

(Also, there might be some salted caramel brownies on the horizon. Keep your fingers crossed, book club.)

In the meantime, I shall get cozied up in my jammies and knit while watching Tron. 

Yeah. I live a charmed life.

Ahhh, Tron. The best movie I never thought I'd like. Enjoy the fruits of your labours.

Wow. Our bounteous garden looks even better on the screen. Great photos, wonderful narrative (as usual), and yes, we do live in an 'awesome' neighborhood. (Wish I could wiggle my nose and have all of the peaches, raspberries and tomatoes all bottled up. It will be interesting to see what happens with all of it while I'm gone.)
