is that summer's a wonderful thing! Ok, shameless butchering of a Tigger quote, but what better way to get my point across?
Ever since we've lived in the south, (and I guess being a lowly preacher and his lowly wife can't hurt), people have shared the abundance of their harvest with us. So far this season we've received cucumbers, squash, tomatoes and zucchini. When we lived in Kentucky it was strawberries. God bless Wayne and his strawberry patch, braving the cottonmouths to pick them for us and make us jam. *sniff*
I actually don't feel guilty for making spaghetti when I make the sauce from scratch. The taste is a little different - it just took me a minute to realize that lack of preservatives and other icky things can make something simple taste downright delicious! And why do homegrown vegetables taste so much better than those purchased in a store? Kinda makes me want to buy a piglet and raise it...mmm, bacon :)
Anyway, kudos to those of you with the patience and ability to keep a garden. And if you've got too many ears of corn or more tomatoes than you can eat, send some my way.
p.s. I'll be a little more sporadic than usual with the posts for the next little while. My church has got VBS coming up very soon and guess who was elected as director! That's the last time I skip a business meeting. Lord knows what they'll have me doing next...
