Garden Harvest — Always a Thrill!


Three weeks ago, I wrote a post about buying some vegetable starters and being hopeful that they would inspire me to get back into the garden. And they have!… It was wonderful to get my hands into the soil to plant them, and has been a joy to tend them periodically and water them with collected rainwater.

1st Harvest from the seedlings I planted 3 weeks ago

Now I am even more inspired… Less than three weeks after planting the starters, it was a delight to be able to harvest some leaves from them and enjoy them with other mealtime tasties today.

Garden greens grilled and served with grilled pastured ribeye steak and roasted kabocha squash. Yum Yum

I find it soul-filling and body-nurturing to participate in sunshine, soil, water and air becoming healing food that becomes part of me!!

Riding the inspiration, I recently ordered several varieties of lettuce seeds that I am eager to plant now that the moon is waxing again.
