Garden harvests

We prepared more stuffed peppers for dinner and for the freezer. The process makes for a long day in the kitchen and a few hours of hard work, but pays off with quick meals in the cold weather.

Some locally-grown Red Haven peaches add to the dinner table. Their pretty color is matched only by the sweet taste! We like peaches!!!

Some of our garden corn tops off the repast. We had a poor crop this year, but managed to find a few meal-sized portions -- but none for the freezer. We are not the first to notice and comment on the pleasures and satisfactions of an agrarian-based self-sustaining food planting, care, and harvest. Surely our forbearers, following the cycles of nature and weather, lived more simply than we with our complicated, interdependent modern lifestyle!
