BUTTERNUT SQUASH IN A VINTAGE DOLL CRADLE
Currently, my days are pretty evenly divided between sorting through my
numerous collections...and working in
my vegetable garden.
When you garden organically, it's a very time consuming process.
Even one day missed, can give the bad guys—those noisome weeds
and pests—the upper hand.
BABY CORN AND CORN HOLDERS
It's almost like having a nursery full of infants to attend to! But...
truth be known, I enjoy taking care of my

I nuture and care for them, and they provide me with a larder full of
wholesome, healthly goodness.

If you've ever gardened, you probably understand the joys of gathering your
fruits and veggies fresh daily.

anything purchased in a grocery store...

I like knowing that my food is being produced in the healthiest

and that I'm not only providing my family with something that taste good,
but is also good for them.
the days spent out in the hot sun—digging in the dirt, weeding, and eliminating
bad bugs—are a small price to pay for all the benefits that are reaped...
when I also get to have sooo much fun
playing in the nursery! ; )
