Richard's Bucket

This morning, Richard headed to the Garden to pick a Bucket of Fresh Vegetables for a Breakfast Stir Fry. What did he find? He came back with Turnips, Yellow and Orange Carrots, Celeriac, Dinosaur Kale, Red Kale, Green Kale, Rainbow Chard, Herbs (Rosemary, Marjoram, Thyme, Parsley), a Leek, plus he added Onions and Garlic which had already been harvested.

Those Veggies were sensory pleasures. They were beautiful to the Eyes. The aroma was exquisite. I wish somehow I could incorporate "scratch and sniff" into the Screen.

Overall, the Veggies were filled with Vibrant Living Energy. They went right from the Garden into the Cast Iron Skillet, then into our Bowls and from there right down that Tube into our Bellies. They have been stoking the Fire for our Body's Replenishment and Energy for this Day. How cool is that?

We told Mother about Richard's early morning adventure to the Garden. She said anytime Richard goes to the Garden with a Bucket, that is a good thing.

We are amazed at all the Veggies that we still have in the Garden. Melanie says that we have "heaps". It is true that the Warm Season Veggies have been long since harvested. This latter group of produce which he harvest would be called "Cool Season". They will hang until that Hard Freeze, the Ground Freezes, or some other event jeopardizes the Crop. Speaking of which, Richard is going to harvest Carrots tomorrow because the Rabbits have found them.

We are deeply grateful for the Bounty Nature shares.

Have you ever slow roasted root vegetables such as these? They are soooo delicious that way.
