Eating out my garden

I harvested and ate some of my new crop of kale tonite! It is such a joy to get up in the morning, go out back and pick arugula - the first veggie ready to harvest, and then to stop along the driveway and munch on raspberries that the neighbor is growing.

This year, besides the regular greens, tomatoes, spinach, cilantro, sugar snap peas, chives, garlic, basil, I am growing soy beans, amaranth, kabocha, and maybe cantaloupe that I believe is just starting to sprout!

You can NOT grow organic if you don't start with organic seeds!
