There is something very pleasurable about growing things. I like getting my hands dirty. I like the smell that tomato plants leave on my hands. I like knowing exactly what has gone into the food that I will eat, and that it grew because of my hard work.
I especially like it when I discover that one of the little bunches of green is finally growing something that actually resembles food... that's when it really pays off.
Okay... so it's tiny, little, itty-bitty-baby broccoli... but it still feels good. Bet you've never seen such adorable broccoli before!
