Food prepared from your own garden just tastes so much better than anything from the super market. I don’t have a garden, just a pot with a cherry tomato plant that has treated me to two strange looking reddish pea sized tomatoes. I also have a few herb plants. The cilantro bolted and the bugs are eating the basil. The rosemary is looking good. Unfortunately I dislike the taste of rosemary. No matter, there is always the farmers market or if you are really lucky, one of your friends who has a garden will have you over for lunch. If you are really-really lucky another friend with a garden will make you lunch the very next day as well.
I am just that lucky.
