Food you've grown yourself tastes so dang good. At first I thought it was psychological, but then I gave it some thought. To really know where what you're eating came from is a rare thing. And if you think about it, it's kind of how it's supposed to be.
Caprese salad is one of my very favorite foods. But the caprese salad I made last night was incomparable. It was so fresh! As I was eating it, I thought about how I once had the dirt these plants came from underneath my nails... And how I've watched bees working so hard going from blossom to blossom. And there I was not only eating the result, but it was providing real sustenance for my body. It's a kind of an amazing cycle.
Side note: The mozzarella in my salad was not grown by me. I don't have a dairy cow, but one day I will and she will be the princess of all dairy cows.
