3 thoughts on “Culinate

  1. When I was 10 we lived in a small town in Pennsylvania that was suburbanizing. Our housing development backed up on a farm. That farm didn’t grow anything edible, either — just corn for cows — and I was mystified by that, like you.

    I’m in a house now with a 3′ x 3′ garden patch, so we’re getting vegetables from a CSA this year. Yesterday was our first delivery. The greens arrived as a plant, you know, with the roots attached. I put them in vases in the kitchen to await use. It’s a lovely thing … but we did have 2 caterpillars appear on the counter! Fresh food *is* labor intensive, whether you grow your own or buy it. You have to have a passion for it, I think, or it just won’t seem worth your while. I like to read your blog — and The Ethicurean, etc. — because it reminds me why I love growing things.
