Every year I change some of the vegetables I grow in the back yard. This year, the crop includes more salad greens
and kale than past years.
I have begun to harvest some of the greens. With a dressing of olive oil and flavoured vinegar, we have tasty salad five minutes after harvest.
I enjoy vegetable gardening. While flower beds are lovely, they don't have the same appeal for me as growing some of my own food. Knowing what's in and on the food is important. Saving money on groceries this time of year is important too. However, one of the best things about the backyard garden, is the benefit to the environment which comes when food is grown ten feet from the door and chemical free. I feel good about this food, it is tasty and healthy, too.
Pennies provide enough salad mix for family and friends for the summer. Salad anyone?
