Exotic & Homegrown

I have the pleasure of tending to my neighbor's vegetable garden for a couple of weeks while they're off to some exotic destination. 
I asked them not to tell us where they were headed to. 
You see, it's just the two of them & adventure is their middle name.

Yes, they take those kinds of adventures.

Did you think I would go & pick vegetables without my camera?

Probably the most convincing reason to have a vegetable garden is a homegrown tomato.

 All organic so a quick rinse at my garden sink and onto tea towels to dry made prep simple.

 The quintessential summer repast.
Slice thick slices of these red beauties, slather mayonnaise on a crunchy soft roll, & season with sea salt and freshly ground pepper.

Our friends are fabulous cooks so along with tomatoes there is fresh dill, basil, oregano, and chives.      Photo, Lisa Porter     Photo, Lisa Porter     Photo, Lisa Porter  It's a quiet summer night at home in the Bluegrass & the air's incredibly still & heavy.
