What I Can Eat from My Garden
There is a calmness to a life lived in gratitude, a quiet joy.
- Ralph H. Blum
It's early to be thinking about Thanks-for-giving, but at the same time, just as in Christmas being celebrated every day of the year, we have hundreds of reasons every day to be thankful!
My garden is such an example...What can I eat from my small, city, backyard garden?
~ peas ~ zucchini ~ yellow squash ~ strawberries ~ raspberries ~ sunflower seeds ~ squash flowers ~ pumpkins ~ tomatoes of all sorts ~ green beans ~ chives ~ peppermint ~ basil ~ lettuce of varied shape and color ~ radishes ~ thyme of two names ~ lavender ~ oregano
And there are probably many flowers that may be had for flavor. But I grow them for bees, butterflies, and beauty.
Ahhh. The pleasures to be enjoyed in working the soil and savoring the bounty.
Quiet peace and calmness...
