We had lovely weather over the weekend and it got me thinking about our vegetable garden. What delicious goodies do I want to plant this year?
Early spring planting is one of my favorite times for veggies. The ground is warming, the air crisp in the morning, and Mother Nature is waking and welcoming all her children to return.
With that as my source of inspiration, I decided to sculpt two veggie inspired heads:
Sweet Peas! There is nothing like growing sweet peas, picking them off the vine, and eating them right in the garden. (I think the third pea is a little alarmed by the prospect of being eaten right off the vine.)
Another favorite spring veggie:
Red leaf lettuce! Last year we planted red leaf lettuce, Bibb lettuce, and Swiss chard. Ms. Leaf also provided additional inspiration for a new focal disk. I haven’t quite worked out the design for the new disk though I’m getting closer to it. All will be revealed….eventually.
We have another vegetable in our garden that may be the source of another head later this week. This particular veggie is a perennial. We look forward to seeing it burst forth each year. Sweet, tender, and excellent raw or cooked. Any guesses?
My schedule is busy the next couple of days, so I may not have a new head to post until the end of the week. Until then, eat your veggies!
