Autumn in the Garden at Oven and Earth

October 8, 2012 · 5 comments

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?

Wow that is what a garden should look like. You live in a beautiful state where things grow so well. I love the combo of flowers and garden (i do that but here in the midwest I don’t see it that much). Hard work pays off. The photos are magnificence.

Stunning. Fantastic photos, and an amazing place. Love the flowers, love the crazy looking gourds/ squash. It is all so magical looking…

I spent my summer this year in my mothers garden and it was a true gift. I forgot how much work and love she has put into her garden. The best part that you also get is that you get to share with your children the life you led when you were a child. To all enjoy your parents now, mine are in their late 70s and you can see them really slowing down. Great photos Thanks
