It’s the peak of the season in my parents’ garden. My kids and I have the privilege of spending quite a lot of time basking in the autumn glow among the rows of corn and kale. I grew up in this garden, but it’s only now, as an adult, that I can really appreciate what an oasis it is. If the following photos seem a little magical, it’s because that’s exactly what this place is.
My parents’ homegrown vegetables and my mom’s bread and other baked goods can be found at the Corvallis Saturday Farmers’ Market at the Oven and Earth booth. My mom has a bazillion crazy gourds and nice Jack-O-Lanterns that she’d really like to get rid of, so come down to the market and get yourself a pumpkin, okay?
