This morning I had a fun time helping out at the The Secret Garden with a group of preschoolers who came for a field trip. Interacting with young children, teaching them about composting, garden soil, planting and watering, is always refreshing and definitely filled with surprises.
My reward, besides satisfaction, is bringing home a little harvest of greens.
Gorgeous spinach that was turned into lunch.
I sauteed the spinach in a little olive oil along with a chopped tomato. Then added vegetable broth, sea salt, black pepper, garlic powder, turmeric and chickpeas. I had some leftover rice from yesterday so stirred that in and within 15 minutes had a simple, healthy, delicious lunch.
The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just the body, but the soul.
Have a blessed day!
