I’m serious. Everyone should grow something edible at least one time. There is truly nothing as tasty, rewarding or radically awesome as caring for a plant from seed to table. I love walking into the garden and harvesting something for us to enjoy. These radishes will be on our lunch table and in our bellies tomorrow! (We would have enjoyed them this evening if our farm trip wasn’t cut short by pounding rain…I forgot them in the fridge at the farm!)
Even if you live in an apartment, you should grow some herbs or edible flowers. If you have a small patio, grow some potatoes in a garbage pail. Whatever you do for goodness sakes…grow something. Anything. I’ll bet you do it again!
