One of the greatest parts of having a garden is being able to “run to the garden” rather than “run to the store” when I need a carrot, some scallions, a few peas, or some greens. In a couple of weeks, possibly as long as a month, there will be even more vegetables that I’ll be able to walk out the back door and harvest from the garden.
The other day while making some soup for dinner I realized I didn’t have any carrots. Even though our carrots are still a bit young, I headed out to the garden and picked just a few to put in the soup.
They really hit the spot and were just what the soup needed to make it the best it could be.
There are so many rewards to be gotten from gardening — one of the best being the bounty, and for this I am — Simply Grateful.
