Feeding the Body

It's been nearly a month since I've posted anything on this blog. Time flies! So many big, beautiful things have been happening in and around the garden, but this is the time of year when big things can easily start to go wrong. Pests move in, days grow brutally hot and dry, plants grow ill.

I have had so many things I've wanted to share on this forum, I haven't known where to begin. Let's begin again with something beautiful and familiar!

This morning I harvested an amazing bunch of veggies to bring down to Project SOUP. There were cucumbers, many kinds of tomatoes, a little bit of broccoli, carrots, serrano peppers, green peppers, baby bok choi, parsley, sage and the usual pile of kale, collards and chard.

When we are able to bring vegetables down to the pantry early in the week, often they are the only fresh food available to clients at that time. When I arrived today, for example, there was a small pile of onions on the counter and when I left it looked like this:



  1. So interesting about fresh food not generally being available at pantries early in the week... that makes the last photo very dramatic!

  2. that is AMAZING! I can't believe how much produce comes from our garden...
