Look: This year is the first year I actually got joy from my garden. We got to eat most of the strawberries, a job previously held by Millie our dog. We also grew potatoes, tomatoes and herbs.
Learn: I learn little by little how to garden. This year instead of trying to plant tons of things, we did a little and that really helped up keep up. The kids really enjoyed digging and playing and seeing things grow. This past week I saw that my friend had bowls of dried herbs from her garden. I thought it was perfect timing to do this here too. I dried sage, oregano, basil and mint. I even infused some herbs into my olive oil and froze it for sauces.
Love: Flavor brings me joy...so herbs are a great way to make everything taste fantastic. My favorite this year was my pesto. I make it with roasted soybeans, basil and evoo. It comes out super yummy and no one has asked or missed the cheese!
