July Eats-God’s bounty is so freakin’ good July 2, 2008

When I was a kid summer marked the distinct beginning of a good eating season–outdoor eating. My dad and I talk often about these experiences and the importance of growing, gathering, and preparing your own food. He pointed out that my kids are the first on his side of the family to hail from the land of sidewalks, the rest of us from dirt.

Wyatt and Amaiah:

I wish you could have seen the peach tree in my grandma’s backyard whose trunk split right down the middle one year under the weight of it’s own offerings.

Shucking 12 dozen ears of corn takes a long time. It’s worth it.

Finding a worm as you’re working might make you scream and throw your ear down. That’s funny.

It’s good to get lost in a corn field at least once in your life, or any field for that matter.

Taking the shortcuts through alfalfa fields might get you scolded.

Take your kids to Peach Days at least once.

1984-1,000 more buckets to go girls

2006-Yes! Passing the torch.

Happy eating everyone!!
