so now we're dancing through the garden, and what a garden i have made.












Our weekend celebration included a trip over to Schnepf Farms to check out the Peach Blossom festival. And while the peach blossoms weren't nearly as pretty as I imagined they would be, it was so fun exploring the rest of the huge farm for a couple hours.

Our favorite part was being able to harvest our own vegetables! We picked spinach, romaine, kale, beets, radishes, broccoli, and turnips.* Then on Sunday we enjoyed some really flavorful salads. I've been saying it for years, but this further solidified the fact that I really want my own garden.


*Clint wanted the turnips, and then wouldn't stop referencing Super Mario 2. He may or may not have two-hand-hucked some over his head at me.

  15. Let's help each other plant gardens. I need a garden so when I go on my let's-not-go-grocery-shopping-this-week kicks, I'll still have fresh produce.

  26. merissa - the plates are from crate & barrel. we received a big set as a wedding present about 4 years ago, so i'm not sure if they are still available, but maybe.

  27. good gosh, angela.

    that comment just made my day. just because it came from you, miss talented at everything!

    i've been so scared to put myself out there, so i secretly started that blog. and it's been good for me. i feel like i'm truly blogging for myself and not for anyone else.

    but boy, sweet comments from people that i respect so much makes me feel motivate to be better.

    so, thank you!

  28. Wow, that all sounds amazing! And it makes me want a garden too (darn apartments), although I can't seem to keep any of my houseplants alive so maybe that's a sign...

  33. Such beautiful photos, Angela! I'm envious as this sounds like one of the most amazing ways to spend an afternoon! My husband and I are currently in the market for a house, and we're not settling on one unless it has a huge yard for a garden! I hope you start one, you'll be amazing at it.
