I don't mean to alarm you...but farmers have invaded my kitchen.
Want to see what I mean?
My husband and daughters are starting a brand new gardening project tonight! This summer our urban sports camp is going to sport a mighty fine vegetable garden. Dave found some wonderful heirloom seeds from the nearby Baker Creek Seed Company, and has gotten some good advice from our local College of the Ozarks Landscaping Department. He's hoping to supply our camp kitchens this summer with some home-grown vegetables--like lettuce, watermelon, tomatoes, spinach, peppers, chives, and basil. We have lots of other hopes for our garden, too, including getting the inner-city campers involved!
But, for tonight, in this first week of March, there are farmers in my kitchen planting tiny seeds in some dark fertile soil.
Just like life, huh? Sometimes you have to plan far in advance...planting tiny seeds along the way, lovingly watering and caring...and waiting for results that we won't get to enjoy for quite some time.
What have you been planting and cultivating lately?
