Gratification Grows On Vines, From The Ground, From Your Own Two Hands...

Zucchini, squash, bundles of tiny tomatoes, ruby red strawberries, all that and more we grew in our garden. There were beautimous deep purple eggplants that sprouted light lavender flowers, a lone bell pepper plant that produced the perfect crunchy green bell pepper, a little bundle of lively herbs (dill, parsley, cilantro, German thyme, basil, lavender, catnip...yes we grew the nip :P). There were numerous green onion plants around the garden. A bunch had their own special section, some grew with the potatoes, others next to the leeks, and a few next to the one sunflower that managed to grow. A patch of collards soaked up the sun and rain next to a short-lived snow pea plant. The peas it did produce were like biting into candy...delicious! And last but not least, the once lush array of lettus that grew in its own special bed. How good it tasted compared to the bagged greens from the store, you could only imagine. Though most of what I have described is dead and gone until the next cycle, it was still so gratifying to dine on my own foods that I helped grow from the beautiful Earth ^_^
