Locally Grown....


The name of the game on Saturday night was to bring something locally grown or organic to share a feast at the LoveNest.



Mid-summer in Maryland is brimming with local corn, heirloom tomatoes, cantaloupe, watermelon, peaches and tons of zucchini and yellow squash- making it the perfect time of the year to enjoy some fresh "made in Maryland" goodies with some home-grown friends.


Yum!





Part-time farmers and fellow bloggers, Anne and Shawn brought an amazing creation with eggs and tomatoes from their front yard.
Louis and Vencka added local bread smothered in local butter and herbs along with locally brewed beers and wines...
Karen and Al of Distracted Birders shared the bounty from their CSA Farm in Southern Maryland....
....along with the charms of their two adorable offspring.
(as you can tell it was quite a party)
We added our front yard yellow squash and locally produced milk and sausages to the feast....






And mixed the fresh, locally farm supported, low environmental impact evening with some local friends.....







And, we can't wait to do it again!

Wow, what a cool idea. We are part of a CSA here in NJ. We finally got a big bounty last week. The rain has really hurt their output.
