Last week he invited me to come on Memorial Day to pick blueberries.
As I drove in, I spotted a Tiger Swallowtail nectaring on a Mimosa tree.
Not only did I pick blueberries but he offered veggies, too.
Too early for eggplants, but fruits are forming.
The yellowish plants to the left are green beans, the flat kind.
I was invited to pick a whole row; the son-in-law had picked the rest.
Cucumbers are plentiful; that's an eggplant nearest the camera.
He cut an enormous cabbage for me to take home. I had never seen a cabbage with
small cabbages growing around the base. There were enough tiny cabbages for
us to eat for supper like brussels sprouts but with more delicate flavor.
The youngest of their 3 granddaughters was visiting.
It was a grand Memorial Day.
