What would I do without Mom and Dad’s garden of veggies, herbs, and two humongous peach trees soon to ripe with sweet juicy peaches? I don’t know how to garden and I’ve tried to garden in indoor pots but nothing ever turns out right. Plus, I am also fearful of garden bugs.
Last week, Mom called to say that she had some zucchinis, cucumbers, beans, and corn in a bag with my name on it and that I should stop by to pick it up. She and Dad have a small garden in their backyard in which they tend to like a newborn child. They also have a small section of an herb garden full of Hmong herbs and mint (photo above). Over the summer and early autumn, Mom always prepares bags of their veggies and peaches for the siblings to take home.
I’ve boiled the corn (above), made a spicy cucumber salad, sauteed zucchinis, and boiled string beans, and still have some left. Everything is always delicious and I think because it came from Mom and Dad.

Oh these are such beauties!! Great photography. “Everything is always delicious and I think because it came from Mom and Dad.” And that is the sweetest truth of all. Sharon
Thanks, Sharon. And, yes…so true.
I visit my grams every week and she showers me with wonderful veggies from her garden. I would love to garden, but like you, I’m also fearful of garden bugs (caterpillars, worms, snails, and slugs).
Mai, that’s wonderful of your grandparents. Someday we will have to fight our fears and go for it. 🙂
