Food Tastes Better Outside!
When spring comes and the greens are ready, the carrots sweet from winter and there’s foraging at hand, I bundle up the cutting board, picnic knife and grater and bee-line for the garden, kids in tow. If we’re lucky we find calendula, borage, fennel, mint (only growing in containers please), miner’s lettuce, kale, chard and other leaves. Oh, and sugar snaps peas, fava bean flowers and shoots, they’re such a treat.
I’ve decided there’s nothing better than eating in the garden, except maybe playing in the garden and of course growing things. That’s where it all begins, like planting seeds.
