It’s a remarkable experience eating something you grow yourself. I don’t think I’ll ever tire of it.
I grow vegetables on a small-scale, and suffer the same garden failures we all do: pests, frost, heatwaves, drought. It’s a wonder anything gets on the table.
It’s human nature to persevere, however, and when success follows…wow!
We ate fresh broccoli from the garden today. Six beautifully formed plants, six perfect heads of broccoli. Those remarkable greens moved from garden to kitchen to table in under an hour. Broccoli never tasted so sweet.
