There is so much pleasure in gardening--all senses involved in the digging and planting.
Then the day comes, maybe sooner than you expect, when you begin to eat the things you've planted and tended.
That day was today in my garden. I picked new romaine, a few leaves only. And two perfect cherry belle radishes. We have had some wintered-over greens, garlic and onions. And we've had wild food--nettles, chickweek, dandelions, ramps.
Do you know how good real food is--food that you pick in the warm sun of your garden and bring directly into your house?
Let me encourage you to carve out some garden space in your yard, if you have one. Grow a tomato plant on your patio or front stoop.
Food, glorious home-grown food!
