little bursting seeds

Our garden is really starting to get going lately.
The other day I made a salad out of
lettuce, basil, green onions, and brocolli
and sprinkled it with flowers -
rose petals,
and nasturtiums
...all from our garden.

Food tastes so much better when you grow it yourself!

I've been introducing a simple verse before our meals that I found in Seven Times the Sun by Shea Darian. The verse she gave is a little longer, but I have gleaned out my favorite part:

"We thank the earth who grew this food,
from little bursting seeds,
And the Keeper of the Earth,
whose gifts fulfill our needs"
