Wordless Wednesday: Our First Harvest

Well, our Modern Garden is little more than one week old and we have already “harvested” our first crops.  Our seed plantings have all begun to sprout and our vegetable plants, like all of the plants and flowers on our property are experiencing mega-growth.  While our neighbor Gloria attributes the plant and flower growth to the fact that all the plantings were covered in three to four feet of snow during most of the winter, we can only attribute the early success of our vegetable garden to the combination of good soil, lots of sunlight, more than a fair amount of rain, luck and…LOVE.

Whatever the reason, the results are very encouraging as well as delicious, and "locally grown" has taken on a new meaning.
