Bountiful Beauty

I took a short trip this weekend to visit my family and while I was there I took a stroll through the gardens to pick some of the wonderful vegetables to bring home with me. It was such a beautiful sight to behold with such a colorful variety to choose from. My Mom and I spent a good hour just gathering a few things. The picture I have added includes a mix of bright and hot peppers, squash, okra and heirloom tomatoes.

Have you ever dried tomato seeds to replant? Well, that is what I will do with the heirloom tomatoes. They are so delicious that I want to grow them as well. If I remember correctly, my Mom called them Russian 117 ( sounds like a fighter jet) and Purple Cherokee's.

It looks like my dinners this week will be quite delicious!


  1. You are amazing Carrie! I can also see that picture hanging in kitchens everywhere!

  2. You inspire me to stop working so hard and enjoy a few hours cooking today!

  3. Wow Carrie,

  4. What fun you and your mother must have had together in the garden. I love heirloom tomatoes...I have some growing in my salsa garden & cannto wait for them to ripen. Nothng says summer more than sun warmed sliced tomatoes with some salt & pepper!
