Whether it's lying under her favorite tree with the book she just can't put down or hosting special guests to connect over savory delights, Oprah has mastered the art of living her best life. For Saturdays with Oprah, the O of O invites readers inside her most blissful weekend moments.

It's no secret that Oprah has a green thumb. Or, two, technically. And because she likes to give, she's let us tour her stunning garden before—which she rides to on an ATV, no less—each time beaming with the type of sheer bliss that only watching your little baby veggies grow from seedlings to Pinterest-perfect produce can bring. She takes particular pride in her tomatoes, we've learned. And Lady O even travels with the avocados from her personal orchard. (Hey, when you BYO, you never have to worry about guac being extra!) If a gardening high is a thing, she's got it. (Also, if it is real, I'm never running again.)

And this Saturday, Oprah gave OprahMag.com a look at the weekend haul from her 163-acre Hawaiian property—and oh my gourd, cabbage has never looked so good.

In the video she shared with us, she shares a lullaby to her beloveds in her most lilting Southern accent. "Today's bounty: Purple caaaabage, we got corn, we got turmeric, got beets, got zucchini, got kale, got onions, we got cauliflower...we are ready. Mmm hmm. It is a bountiful life, indeed."

And as we've seen from Oprah's previous posts on her own Instagram, not only does she delight in fostering these fruits, but she also puts them all to go use. Purple potatoes and carrots? Soup's on!

A metric ton of kale? Kale yeah! Let's turn that leafy goodness into chips. Dragon beans? Lemon verbena? We're not even quite sure what those are, but when Oprah talks about them, you can practically smell the citrus.

No word yet on what she'll do with these beautiful creatures. Hang them on her wall? Make a turmeric necklace for Stedman? Hand them over to Chef Eddie to use as a relish for her sexy eggs? Probably just the last option, but one thing's for certain: We're headed out to buy gardening gloves. But, Oprah, first...can we get some pointers?
