My Happy Place

I call my Potager my happy place. It is my place to unwind, relax and enjoy the simple pleasures of nature.

The simplest things make me happy. Like sturdy little bean plants appearing.

And abundant healthy looking green tomatoes!
These are the promises of good things to come. And is there anything more lovely than a corner overflowing with cucumbers and squash?

Large healthy green leaves which hide a treasure trove beneath!

One Ball

Eight ball

Yellow squash - unknown variety
The pleasures of actually gathering food - and the pleasures of future food to come. 

And the pleasure of flowers, those that will turn into food, but those that are simply there for beauty and attracting pollinators.  You can't be stressed or angry in a garden. It is truly a happy place to be!

There can be no other occupation like gardening in which, if you were to creep up behind someone at their work, you would find them smiling.  ~Mirabel Osler

  1. Your garden is so lush and healthy! Unfortunately, my garden here in South Mississippi isn't faring as well.

    I've enjoyed visiting your lovely potager. Ellan
