“Planning complex, beautiful meals and investing one’s heart and
time in their preparation is the opposite of self-indulgence.
Kitchen-based family gatherings are process-oriented, cooperative,
and in the best of worlds, nourishing and soulful.”
― Barbara Kingsolver, “Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life”
Food gardening is about when to sow seeds and plant seedlings. It’s also about when to harvest your crops.
Harvesting is best done moments before food preparation. Then the fun begins!
