pleasures of the garden

I am very excited because I'm over at the Rolandale Retreat House working on my new novel, Saving Morgan Mountain, and when it was time to break for lunch, I started some mushrooms and spinach frying and dashed out to the garden and picked a baby zucchini and a baby yellow squash and cut them up and tossed them in my stir-fry before they were off the vine more than a minute. I was delighted to be eating fresh, healthy food from my own garden, in season, and as organic as it could be without my knowing the history of that plot of land. (I wrote this on 7/22 over THERE but no internet access there, so couldn't post it.)
