Don’t let this post fool you. I am NOT a food-snob. I mean… how many people can eat at Taco Bell and Long John Silver and actually enjoy it? (I rest my case.)
However, I grew up with the combination of home grown food and a long-line of incredible cooks. It wasn’t until I got married that I discovered foods like cereal, velvetta cheese, frozen waffles and store-bought vegetables.
My dad has done really well with his gardens over the years. He not only encouraged me to start my own, but he also helped me.
Matthew also had a part tilling the land. (You should see the blisters on his hands!)
I planted a few, but mainly stood around with my camera and watched them work with a big smile on my face.
I officially have squash, tomatoes, onions and bell peppers! I can’t wait to fry some squash later and make home-made salsa!
FRIED SQUASH! You’re speaking my language. There’s nothing better.
When did you move back to Atlanta???
The garden was all Christy and Randy’s idea, and I wanted nothing to do with it. However, they left me to do the work. Randy got the knees on his jeans dirty from playing with Ross and Rayna in the yard, not tilling the garden. It was worth it to make my sweet wife happy!
HaHa! I love Matthew’s clarification. Love him!
i have to say i think matthew is telling the truth about doing all of the work! how exactly would you get your knees dirty while tilling? it wouldn’t be easy or safe! marcy
