A Mother's Love
Anyone that knows me, knows that I am all about eating fruits and vegetables. The illustrator and I have only had one successful garden in our 13 years of being together. In all honesty, we really only tried for one big garden and it did do very well (thanks to my father-in-law helping prepare the ground). We moved into our new house 2 1/2 years ago and we have just gotten to the point where we wanted to try to grow some things during the summer. I mean, who doesn't love fresh squash, zucchini, tomatoes and green beans. Turns out the bunnies really like green bean plants and I don't know if you know this, but not much grows on rock...which is what we live on. Ok, well we could eat the moss, but I am not sure that would taste too good. I will let you know if it comes to that! So, now it is mid August and I just got my first tomato off the vine. I am like a proud parent. It is not the best looking or the biggest tomato, but it is mine...all mine! So, I figured I would play around with the camera and some lighting with it. Show off the little cutie. I took some shots of it and then thought I would savor it on a salad for dinner. Wouldn't you know, my youngest comes into the room and says right after he finished his dinner of fried chicken and chips (don't judge me, he eats lots of good stuff too), "I want to eat that with some salt and pepper on it". Now that is a mother's love...I gave it to him!
