A Virginia Farm

My parents are visiting from Virginia this weekend. (I know: we were down at their place last weekend. But my dad's speaking at some cancer event today in Manhattan, so...)

In their honor I'm posting a picture of their gorgeous garden. This is a photo of the corn. There was also a little patch with some kind of exotic japanese beans and a whole slew of drying swiss chard. When I pointed out that the plants were wilting and should probably be harvested, my dad said, "Yeah. Turns out we don't like swiss chard so much..." When I was down there last weekend we harvested a shitload of onions--red and white--and potatoes and we brought a whole bag back to Brooklyn. Mmmm. R. made homefries yesterday and they were delish.
