My Dad's Eden

My dad got experimental with the gardening this season and planted tons of vegetables and berries in the yard. A lot of the fence space was covered with scarlet runner beans and tomatoes were practically dripping off the vines in every direction. In the morning I would walk around the yard in my pajamas, my feet damp with dew, popping the strawberries and cherry tomatoes into my mouth. At night my mom would make delicious entrees using fresh herbs and homemade salads with the cucumbers and tomatoes from the garden.
