Summer Bounty

Fresh summer veggies from the garden rank pretty high up there on my list of favorite things.  For as long as I can remember my parents have had a beautiful and prodigious vegetable garden in their yard.  

When I was a kid I would help my dad occasionally (I remember I loved the Easter-egg-hunt-like process of digging up potatoes) and more often my brother and I could be found foraging in the rows, eating carrots straight from the ground and peas from the vine.  

These days, whenever we spend time at my folks' house we all usually end up in the garden chatting, drinking wine, and picking a basket full of veggies to take home or add to our dinner.  Oh summer, sometimes I wish you would never end. 

I hope your summer has been wonderful so far, and that you're eating your fill of local produce.
