Annual “oregano” harvest

August 22, 2007

Mom bagging the trim.
The family that bags trim together, stays together

Back from the cloistered life that is a yoga retreat I am welcomed with images of the fambly’s summer harvest. Behold my completely blissed-out Mom multi-tasking. She insists that the homegrown herb she’s trimming is “oregano” and that she’s listening to her “daily French” podcast. Yeah right Mom, that’s what we used to call it. Only it wasn’t oregano and iPods hadn’t been discovered yet. Or should I say, ‘encountered’.

  1. Hey! I know this family! Never knew they’d be in to iPods though … We going to see them again soon? We DO HAVE champagne in the house now …

  2. You will see them again soon - maybe in April? Fingers crossed. Bisous!
