It is done. The garden is empty. This week, I brought in the last of the squash, carrots, parsnips, and potatoes.
Here’s one of the many reasons I love gardening: the freaky vegetables you never see in grocery stores – the ugly tomatoes, the twisted carrots, the stumpy potatoes, the massive squash. I think we actually do ourselves a disservice by culling the freaky fruits and veggies. I love finding these little freaks of nature – it reminds me that nothing, absolutely NOTHING on this green earth is perfect. Everything has its own little flaw. Everything is a beautiful mess.
