Enjoying the spoils of our labor

One of the most amazing things about living in the country is our garden.  Music Man really takes pride in his work growing all these vegetables.  We feel lucky to have hit upon a remarkable piece of land that has miracle soil because these veggies grow.  You can practically sit still and watch it happen.

For most dinners we make it a habit to go out and pick our vegetables for the night.  It blows my mind that instead of reaching into my produce bin in the fridge I go out and pick it straight from the ground.  And instead of scrubbing off chemicals before we eat it, I mearly wash off the dirt.  Crazy.

Here is a dinner with our fresh salad and venison that my father in law hunted last year.  A truly Minnesotan country dinner.
