The blueberries are coming in

Back in my past life when I had a day gig, I had to eek out garden time after work and before bed, or on weekends.
That first year when our young blueberries began producing, I shot a picture and showed off the bounty at work.
A guy from south of town that lived in a 5000 square foot house and drove a Beamer chuckled and said, these would probably cost you less if you bought them at Publics. He went on to say, why one earth would you bother growing things you can buy at the store?
I didn't know how to respond.
There's no way to tell someone who has never grown their own food, the joys of eating things you've grown yourself.
I elected not to debate the gentleman about the joys of gardening because it would probably been a waste of breath. 
Now where was I? Oh yes, we were late getting tomatoes in the ground, but a few of them are blooming so before you can say pass the mayo, we'll be having BLT's.



  1. My late papaw Gordon always spoke to me about the joys of eating food that you've grown yourself. Every vegetable he ate came from his garden :)

  2. I can imagine how wonderful it is to grow your own fruits and vegetables ... I know they taste better, people have shared with me :)

  3. Stuff tastes better when you grow it in your own garden. A guy who has a 5,000 square foot house wouldn't understand that.


  4. Oh nothing like home grown.
    It's the best.
    Wake up in the morning and pick a couple of fresh pickles,fresh tomatoes off the vine, pull out a few shallots and you've got the beginnings of a great breakfast.
