may 30 2015: extra help with food styling

On May 30, Griffin and Stephanie helped the garden tremendously. Not only did they do the lion's share of harvesting, but they also delivered the harvest to the pantry in the family car. They then stayed to help arrange the produce in the pantry's baskets. The pantry volunteers have teased me in the past for a certain fussiness in my food styling, but I've never arranged kale leaves into a rosette as artfully as did Griffin.

Back at the garden, the ornamentals and flowers luxuriated in the unusually wet and cool weather.
