Eat your veggies!!

IMG_2754

One of the cool things about the cottage we rent is that it has some amazing gardens in the yard. There are many different types of wildflowers as well as raspberry bushes, chives and mint galore. There is also a strawberry patch, but the berries never turn red… perhaps they are not edible strawberries? I’m not sure. We went to our local farm stand and bought a few strawberry plants, which were doing very well, but have slowed down over the last few weeks. A few months back, my husband purchased some seed pods online, containing various vegetables and herbs. We now have cilantro, lettuce, spinach that we have been cutting down and using. There are several tomato plants, peppers, and a crazy giant cucumber plant from which we are awaiting flowers and subsequently veggies.

I just think its super cool to be able to just pick food in your yard and cook with it. My favorite thing is the cilantro because every time I have tried to grow it indoors it does not do well and I use it all the time!

In the theme of veggies, I’d like to share a series of ornaments that I recently made. My good friend’s daughter is named Anna, so of course everyone calls her Anna Banana! For her 1st birthday a few months ago I made a little clay banana baby ornament as part of the gift that Mommy could enjoy. I decided it was too cute not to expand and make other types of fruit babies! Along with the banana are a strawberry, a carrot, a bunch of grapes, a pineapple and a green onion.

The fruit and veggie babies are available for purchase in my Etsy shop, here: Tara White Studio
