around the garden

It rained again this morning, which was just perfect because I am sure there will be more hot weather to come. Not only that, but plants are very, very beautiful with raindrops on them. I did a little garden tour this morning and gathered jalapeno and cayenne peppers, cucumbers, green beans, and a crown of heirloom Italian broccoli.  It is beyond satisfying to grow your own food.  If you haven't done it, I highly recommend it!

Here are a few photos of my rainy morning excursion:
