A lot of goodness around


Before jumping to any conclusions regarding my sanity let me clarify that these vegetables mean a lot to me. And that is why I have clicked them with dirt and all ... that is the soil from fields.

It was on our weekend long drive out of the city that we came across a field with the farmer and family harvesting carrots. We stopped and talked to them ... hubby was full of questions regarding crop/weather/soil/etc. etc.
These warm hearted people were only too happy to talk to us.

After showing us around their fields and home ... when we were leaving plied us with these wonderful gifts right off their field.
And our offer of paying was firmly turned down.

We were touched. And I thought I'd share these with the few blogger friends I have got now.

The whole story is here in my travel blog.
