Pulling dinner from the dirt.

I'm feeling quite accomplished and a tad bit full of myself. We have managed to grow food ... and EAT it.

The first babe from our garden plot was harvested Sunday - a whole grip of tender salad greens. We were able to grab a handful of basil leaves too. This resulted in a delicious salad tossed with home made pesto with tomatoes, whole wheat rotini and sweet vidalia onions from our weekly shopping trip. Soon enough, we'll be able to make completely home grown meals. And then my mind will melt. Satisfaction.

It was delicious. I am thrilled!
