Worth the Work
Quick post today to celebrate the first meal using lots of my homegrown vegetables. It is definitely worth the work starting seeds, preparing the soil, weeding, and watering to eat your own food. Last night's meal was roasted chicken thighs (no, not my own birds!), green beans, a salad made with my own lettuce and onion (as well as store bought peppers, cucumbers, and cherry tomatoes), beets, potatoes (yay - first new potatoes), zucchini and even a little dill for the potatoes if desired. I felt healthier - ha ha- having eaten my own produce. I'm sure many of you are also doing the same, and some who live in different climates have already been enjoying.
