I woke up at 5:45 stamattina to go to the farm. Excitement filled me so much that I couldn’t wait for zio e zia so I walked down to their house and they laughed as I approached the car (probably because I had an ambitious smile plastered across my face). We were on the farm by 6:15. The main purpose to go this morning was to see the fiori di zucchine bloom because in the afternoon they’re all curled up -hiding from the sun. The flowers are so beautiful… and they’ll be even more beautiful when they’re on my plate later today!
I helped zia collect the beans (which will also be beautiful when they’re on my plate), plant a few peppers, and water the other beans.
Most importantly… I ate my first tomato! Glorious! That tomato was probably the most delicious tomato I have ever eaten… and I planted it! Nothing can beat the satisfaction of knowing where your food comes from, especially when you’re eating it fresh on the farm! I also tried a fig, which I usually do not like, but I loved that too! The atmosphere has changed my taste-buds, I suppose.
Photos to come!
