The dirt beneath my feet, the sun on my shoulders, the breeze kissing my cheeks, the birds chirping in the distance, butterflies passing by and new blossoms on our plants. Today was a good day. It's a new week, a new year and I have a feeling it is going to be great!
I am a romantic at heart and am tickled when I find reminders of love in nature. I often find heart rocks or heart clouds but never lover veggies! These were the first carrots we ever grew and I picked them on Christmas. It was a Christmas present I'll never forget and one of my favs! TWO LOVER CARROTS! They were embracing each other as I pulled them out. I had to share the love.
The harvest is one of my favorite parts!
Tonight we had Kohlrabi Fries, Sweet and Spicy Carrots and Tofu "scampi" with Bak Choy! The Tofu "Scampi" was from Quick Fix Vegan and was delicious!!! We grew 90% of our dinner and it such a good feeling.
There is nothing like going to Missouri, passing the Amish on their horse and buggy, getting lost on an old dirt road and ending up in an old community with heirloom gardens 'n seeds galore. Then taking those seeds years later, planting them in a transient circumstance and growing a garden with my husband. So this dinner took years to prepare but it was worth it!!!
There is something magical about prepping the land, planting seeds, having faith, water and sunshine and then magically the plants appear. Months later, harvest time! Assuming no critters, disease, lack of nurturing or too much nurturing didn't harm them. This garden has been the most fruitful garden we've had and man it's fun! With all of the GMO, nanites and more if ever possible, get heirloom seeds and plant them. :)
To a healthy vibrant life!
