"A (wo)man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of (her)his life in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of beautiful God has implanted in the human soul."- Goethe

Salad from a Box

We've been enjoying all sorts of scrumptious salads from our little box of dirt:

I love growing deliciousness. This year we're trying brussels sprouts for the first time, so we'll see how that goes. Gross! Why brussels sprouts? you may ask. Because they are completely scrumptious when shredded and baked with olive oil and light seasonings, that's why. And, because neither Kirk nor I grew up on them, so we don't have scarred childhoods. Maybe you should set aside your kid-self's horrifying memories and take a second look at this delicious vegetable in your more mature years...just a friendly suggestion.

Are any of you trying new things in your gardens this year? Do tell.


  1. I actually tried brussel sprouts for the first time about a year ago. I actually really like them! I was surprised, because I've heard so many horror stories about them.

  2. I know, right? It's time to spread the love.
