Peapod Bloom

“Peapod Bloom”

The petals are fragile, delicate.  Its life visible right in the bud’s veins.  Filled with chlorophyll, the bud prepares for the next stage of its life.  The stage that gives us life.  Nutrition at its most simplest form, the peapod.


Drying Onions

It’s springtime, time to start planting.  I look back over some images from last year, ones I forgot I had.  Always, the best part of gardening is the harvest.  But even that takes work.  Well worth it.

Day 1 of B/W Photo Challenge

As I embark on this 7 day challenge, I challenge you all to join me.  This weeks theme is the world around you in black and white.

I chose this picture as we head into autumn.  This pumpkin did not ripen all the way and is still green.  The vine has long since died as our first frost has now come and gone, killing everything in its path.  I am still hoping that this pumpkin ripens before Thanksgiving day so I can use it to make my pumpkin mousse with it.

To join us in this challenge, post a pic on your website and enter the URL in the comment below.  Pictures need to have been taken on the same day.  Have fun!

WPC – Sweet

Pumpkins are one of the more versatile vegetables.  If made correctly, it could even be sweet.

They hang gently, swaying softly in the brisk breeze.  The colors coming to life on the vine, so delicate.  It’s hard to believe that something so small would soon grow to provide food.  So important to learn ways to provide for yourself, to feed you.  Simple survival.

Bread.  So simple.  Flour, water.  A few other things.  A plant’s seed comes to be such a light, soft, and filling staple of cuisine.  Most choose not to live without it.  Even the freshly baked aroma that fills the air is intoxicating.  Breath deeply my friends.

Dear Friend,

I once made Prosciutto Chicken for you and it turned out horrible.  I remember it was too salty and you made such funny faces, I couldn’t help but laugh.  I make it again for you tonight to see if I have made it better.  I certainly don’t want to disappoint you again.  I thought it would be a good time to catch up with each other over dinner and wine.  Just try not to laugh.

Faithfully yours.
