Fungi bed, flowers, ripening fruit

The garden is booming. We have olives and plums ripening on the trees; calypso bean pods are drying on the vine. The flowers look beautiful in the sun. Today we made an outdoor oyster bed-that is, pleurotus ostreatus, or the white oyster mushroom. It will add lots of fertility to the garden soil. We snacked on mint today.

I love gardening because I love good food and being outside.  The most delicous food is the food you grow yourself, and the best times in life are spent in nature.
