The best thing about keeping a garden, other than being able to pick organically-grown vegetables or herbs or flowers at a moment’s notice, is the fact that you can grow varieties of plants otherwise rare or hard to find in the market.
Take these beautiful vegetables below, for example.
They’re not your run-of-the-mill eggplants, or tomatoes, or zucchini. They’re more interesting because of their shapes and colors and tastes.
At times I have a hard time harvesting them because they look so pretty growing on the plants. I think I garden mostly because I enjoy seeing things grow.
If the weather continues to be this warm, I’ll be getting a lot more of these vegetables. Time for ratatouille, maybe? Any other ideas?
