cindybarlowe  Seeds from the past give hope for the future.

Special occasions call for special ingredients. Deviled #quail eggs topped with #caviar produced just a few miles from my home are a labor of love for a dear friend’s wedding. #peelingisthehardpart #summerwedding #heartandsolefood #friendssharefood

End of a season. Farewell, #radishes #heartandsolefood #makewayforthenew

No better place to celebrate with a bride to be than @167_raw #chs #foodwithfriends #suescookin

Rewards of #patience. Started yellow Alpine strawberry plants from seed in December, 2016. Tiny, with incredible flavor, the plants decided this spring is a good time to produce abundantly. That little guy in the last photo? #hislastmeal #cantblamehim #heartandsolefood #strawberry

Can you spot the organic gardener’s enemy? #eatingmachine #groundhog #archnemisis

Nor’easters reveal and reclaim this shipwreck, currently occupying a beach near #graveyardoftheatlanticmuseum near Hatteras’ Ramp 55. For over ten years, she comes and goes, her origins unknown. Too large to transport to the museum, she was a six-mast schooner, constructed of pine and oak, sometime during the late 1800s-early 1900s. A transient guest, I last saw her in 2015. Her weathered boards inspire imagination and appreciation for those early sailors who navigated these treacherous waters. #visitnc #outerbanksnc #wanderlust #shipwreck

May all your weeds be wildflowers. #spring in #ncmountains #wildflowers #nofilter

#chickensandwich @willowsbistro deserves a more lofty name. Or maybe the chef who creates it should be King @chef_myers? With arugula, horsey aioli and slammin smoked ham gravy, this brunch special #rocks. #sundaybrunch #winstonsalem #heartandsolefood #delicious

What happens when I forget to crank the #compost tumbler. #sorrylittleguys #heirloomseeds #heartandsolefood

Once upon a time, a woman named Laura owned the land adjoining #heartandsolegardens. A single mother, she raised animals, vegetables, fruits and children long before I was born. When a #forsale sign appeared on Laura’s land, I felt her spirit guiding me. A ridiculous offer was accepted and @richardbarlowe And I now serve as Laura’s land custodians. Nearby, a family #cemetery holds souls who treasured this earth. This time of year, a blooming carpet of periwinkle beckons visitors. A single engraved stone marks the grave of a baby girl. Carrie E, who died one year to the day she was born, was Laura’s daughter. Only a mother’s grief could justify the expense of such a stone. Other graves, including Laura’s are unmarked stones. Today, Laura’s home place is but a tangle of weeds, rocks, a dry well,feral garlic and beautiful daffodils. When the flowers bloom, they are a fitting tribute for unfulfilled promise, bulbs that host beauty, year after year, without care from human hands. The annual pilgrimage to this hallowed ground makes 1890 seem not so long ago. #mothersloveisforever #littlelamb #daffodilseason #honorthepast
