Freshly Picked From My Garden
A lot of people don't understand why you should know where your food comes from, that they should try to grow their own food, and that sometimes, it can be quite easy to grow food yourself. Yes, sometimes it is also difficult and frustrating. I encounter a lot of opposition, push back, and confusion about having a garden and trying to grow my own food. Sometimes, I even encounter it on a weekly basis. But, I reminder myself why I grow some of my own food. I do not do it for others. I do not do it to get praise from others. I do it for myself. I do it because I get satisfaction from growing some of my own food. Something about it just feels right to me. Once in a while, sometimes a long while, I come across another person that does it for themselves. And this person reaffirms that I am doing the right thing.
