When it was time for me to cook dinner tonight, I instinctively walked into the pantry and thought to myself, “what can I make that is quick and easy”. Staring at all the packaged and processed foods, I gave myself a thump to the head and walked out to the garden. I pulled up some radish, carrot, potato, onion, and garlic, corn, and some beans. Then I grabbed some chive and lemon basil. It took a while for me to get everything washed, and it took forever to shell just a small amount of beans. It would be hard to feed yourself from your own garden, but I can see how it could possibly be done. It is much more work than normal, It would be very hard to work all day then prepare a bunch of food from your own garden each day. I need to get better about planting more things in stages so that I have a steady supply of fresh food, rather than all of one type of plant getting ripe at the same time. Continuous work!
OH, and I think I need a bean sheller machine.
