Last year, I drew produce that I had bought at the Farmers' Market. This year, I'm drawing produce that I grew myself in the community garden. I'm pretty proud of these. The colors are intense and the flavor is unbelievable. That's the way a tomato is supposed to taste - bright and vibrant - an explosion of flavor in your mouth. The lettuce was fabulous this year, I got a third crop by planting the seeds underneath the potato leaves which protected them from the hot sun in July so the leaves did not get bitter. The onions and peppers have a really intense taste without being harsh. Next up is potatoes and carrots. There is something so simple and satisfying about growing and harvesting your own food. And of course, drawing before devouring it.
