Eat Some Vegetables! Better Yet, Grow Some!

The story in today’s New York Times about Americans not eating enough vegetables really got to me.  I had just harvested from my small garden, was happy with my beautiful bounty (pictured above),  thinking about what I would make for dinner tonight.  I harvest this much at least every other day, in September, and this doesn’t include the other basket of hot peppers and herbs that I collected. Anyone with a little outdoor space that gets sunlight can throw some seeds in the dirt and grow their own foods, even in a few pots on a balcony.  What are you waiting for?  The results are so rewarding!
