Color from the Garden
I really feel that eating a wide variety of color is the best way to get those most nutrients in your diet. I will admit that I tend to spend a lot of time in the green area but I'm loving getting some more color. Fall is the perfect time to get colorful. My garden is definitely proof of that. The Easter Egg blend of radishes is beautiful, it's almost like collecting a bouquet of flowers when I'm harvesting them. Our oh-so-sweet fall strawberries are ready. And the first tomatoes of the season are the delicious Sun Sugar. A beautiful color and a beautiful flavor. We are still bringing several pints of those dark, juicy blackberries. But of course there is tons of green. We have kale, jalapenos, celery, zucchini, beans. cucumber and in a few more weeks pac choi. Don't you just feel healthier thinking about all the colors in the garden? Whenever I feel like I am forgetting a component of my diet, my garden reminds me with a bountiful (and colorful) harvest.
