15 Photos That Make Us Wish We Loved Gardening As Much As Oprah

Oprah seems to have found the one thing that brings her calm amidst her media mogul life: gardening. And boy, she really seems to love it. Whether the fruits of her labor are coming from her garden or her vegetable farm on Maui, the only people happier than she is are those of us who follow her on Instagram.

Photos of her hauling in fresh bounty started to become more frequent in the Spring of 2013, around the same time there was a lot of buzz around the new farm Oprah and her friend (and former trainer) Bob Greene were developing near her palatial 60-acre farmhouse on Maui. Says Oprah:

I was raised on a tiny farm in Kosciusko, Mississippi, by my grandmother, and she grew everything. Never went to town for food. Other than baking powder, baking soda, and maybe some yeast, we bought nothing. If you needed medical remedies, you’d go out and gather some roots and pine cones. I remember her making me pine cone tea when I had a cold.

According to an online slideshow, the farm is situated “at almost 4,000 feet elevation on the side of Haleakala, a dormant volcano, where it gets consistent rainfall and plenty of sun.” And really great soil.

Every time we want to think of Oprah as one of the proletariat, we can look at these Instagram pics of her arms wrapped around her new love, vegetables, and think for a least a moment that she is one of us. But with a way nicer home.
