Now that it’s autumn, our garden is looking old and tired.

But we’ve produced so much and have shared the bounty with many this growing season. That feels good.

With the variety of quality food that we put into our bodies, after 7 years with garden beds on our city lot, the ritual of harvesting has become an exciting part of our routine.

Right now, it’s potatoes, tomatoes, shallots, and zucchini (and other squashes).

But mostly warm, dirty, weird-shaped but mostly round, earth-scented potatoes.

When our kids’ dad barbecues them and serves them fresh off the grill, you’d think our kids had died and gone to heaven.

They are pure golden treats for all.

This time we dug potatoes from the garden beds, which we only dig up what we are going to use (they taste fresher that way, at least for now), sliced and fried in garden-fresh shallots.

Baked Eggs and Potatoes Skillet Breakfast

We made one of the simplest recipes, but truly nourishing to our bodies, Baked Eggs and Potatoes Skillet Breakfast.

And to be honest with you, it was the conversation around the table that was really the treat.

This week, 2 will be off to college and the home will be quiet and … different.

The dynamics in our home will be changing.

Just as the season is changing.

And with the season, nourishment, love, and great joy.
