Future Food

I love waking up each morning and glancing out our window to check on our tiny little edible garden. Like a vegetarian Noah's Ark, it holds a pair of various plants (spinach, cucumbers, carrots, beans, peppers, beets, 'maters) and won't produce much food. But tending to it with love everyday makes me happy. A sure sign of getting older :).

Soon we'll be able to use spinach for our famous risotto, cucumbers for salads, and 'maters for veggie BLT's. But for now it's all just future food and a happy hello every morning outside the window.

  2. I always thought of future food as freeze dried milkshakes. Not sure whose garden that ungodly stuff comes from.
