Garden party

beet-leavesRaise your hand if you had a home garden this summer!

Every year, we are spoiled by what the earth gives us. Zucchinis, beets, parsley, tomatoes, kale, green onions…you name it! Credit goes to my mother and brother who prepare everything at the start of the season. I can only receive credit for occasional watering and lots of eating.

Did you know that home gardens help reduce your personal carbon footprint? By growing your own food, you are reducing CO2 emissions dramatically and avoiding harsh pesticides (among many other things).

Packed and frozen, we have lots of veggies to help us get through the winter. Can we all start praying this winter won’t be a brutal one?

I tried out a tabouleh/couscous recipe with parsley from our garden. Mmm mmm mmm delicious! Link for the recipe below. Check out pictures of our garden veggies too! beats
