There's something about this time of year that makes me want to harvest summer squash and zucchini from the garden and prepare it for dinner tonight. It's my childhood again, peeking up over the counter looking at me. Growing up, summertime dinners mostly came from the garden, and I am grateful my parents instilled in me the blessings of planting, tending, and harvesting from your own soil each season. It makes one conscious of time, nature, and the value of life, work, and sharing.

I have loved this video since it came out three years back and re-watched it again a few weeks ago. I still love it. The husband-wife team, Tiger in a Jar, does some fabulous work.
