|As some of you already know, I love growing my own vegetables. I have several gardens in my backyard and grow organically. This cabbage among others in one of my gardens is ready to harvest now. I hope you will be inspired to grow your own vegetables and eat healthy pesticide free foods. I find it fun, rewarding and exciting to share my extras with friends who in turn at times share some of theirs with me if they have gardens. I never know what is going to come my way.|
|On a recent trip along the coast of California we came across these beautiful strawberry fields in the city of Oxnard. The farmers plant the colorful flowers all around the rows of fruit to control destructive insects and attract beneficial ones instead of using pesticides. It creates such a gorgeous border for the perfectly aligned rows. Because of the fences surrounding the fields, I could not get as close as I would have liked to take this shot at the perfect angle. After a bit of editing and cropping to get rid of the fences and other unsightly areas, I am pretty happy with the results. HERE IS THE LINK TO THE ORIGINAL sta.sh/01v1jxyq30pr|
Editing was done with Photoshop 5.5.
