I posted this yesterday morning in Saturday Morning Garden Blogging, and wanted to share with you all. It is what all the gardeners made with our bounty in our gardens this past year. No Chinese imported foods were used in the making of our feast.

Tis the morning of Chistmas, and all through SMGB many elves are a stirring, plotting and planning.  To bring you a special Christmas Brunch,  a feast for the eyes and belly.

The elves have been busy in the past 6 months leaving clues in their photo'€™s on  SMGB of what is to come.

Marian is the crew chief in charge of production. So this is what she has been up to these past few months that she has been a no show.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
