My wife has the most amazing green thumb. Our yard is ablaze in colors, front and back. On the balcony off the porch in back, vegetables, spices, and flowers fight to see which can grow the fastest. Nearby, our plot in a community garden thrives. See below.
It’s still May and the harvests have begun. Zucchini has been big this week. As I write this, my wife, daughter and honorary aunt are hard at work pickling zucchini. Between the organic produce weekly delivery and our own yields, we eat sumptuous fresh unprocessed local foods.
As positive as gardening is for one’s diet, I am even more excited about the life lessons gardening teaches our daughter: planning, nurturing, patience, resource management, to name a few.
What a glorious day!
