Renewing the Body with Strong, Organic Food

I love renewing my body with strong, organic food.

It even tastes different, so much more intense and satisfying.

I was at my community garden patch last night talking with another member and we both agreed we feel like we haven't been feed when we eat commercially produced food after our own strong food.

It is hard to put into words the difference. Perhaps I should say it just tastes weak. You cannot dilute your soil and its nutrients, add chemical pesticides and herbicides and expect to produce the food nature intended for our bodies.

All of the pictures in this blog are of food I am currently growing at my own community garden patch.

The broad beans above will soon be ready. They grew from the seeds from my last years crop.

Always lots of delicious little cherry tomatoes and my red cabbages are just starting to form centers. I eat the outer leaves while they are young like this. Little bok choy  have self seeded between the cabbages, and always I find a small broccolini to add to the dinner mix.

Love discussing how to cook our wonderful food with other members. So many delicious ideas from all cultures. Makes me hungry thinking about them.
