Last night I was invited to talk tomatoes at the wonderful new community garden. What a remarkable place; walking through the numerous healthy, productive plots was truly inspiring, and a model for what this type of garden should be...bravo to all involved! Tomorrow I will be at the Farmers Market participating in a tomato tasting and, from what I am told, doing some cooking with local chef Gina Guthrie - here is the write up of both events in the local newspaper.
But this is the "something completely different" - when we come to Gastonia or Mt. Holly, Sue and I make it a point to visit the Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens in Belmont. We are so fortunate to have our visit coincide with the remarkable examples of ZimSculpt - artwork by sculptors of Zimbabwe. Sue and I took dozens and dozens of pictures and were truly moved by the works. A small sampling of some of our favorites can be found below.
