brown paper packages

It's my friend Penny's birthday today. Here's her present. Finished with an adorable gift tag from Belle and Boo. Isn't their stuff just the sweetest?

Penny's an amazing gardener, she has this way with tomatoes that I'm so envious of. They just grow and grow and grow. Then she collects the seeds in paper towels, lets them dry for a year, then plants in the spring. She's what I call a tomato witch. So I bought her the Jamie at Home book. Penny seems to grow all the things Jamie does, asparagus, broccoli, tomatoes, potatoes and beets. I hope she likes it.

I've never been such a huge Jamie fan, but I've a new found respect for his recent projects. I am so loving the Home series, his garden is so beautiful, his recipes delicious and his message so simple. It's so easy to grow and eat better food.

Alles Gute zum Geburtstag Penny!
