home grown

42 Blueberries. 7 Sungold cherry tomatoes. That's what I picked from my little garden yesterday. Yep, I can buy huge containers of blueberries at the grocery. They're in season and plentiful. This evening, I ate the blueberries and tomatoes slowly one at a time. Like dessert. Maybe that's it. Something readily acquired with cash can skew our values. Easy access can dull our sense of gratitude and appreciation. All I know, is that after planting, watering, tending, watching them grow and then picking these, they taste sweeter than anything I've bought at the store.
