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!
