The empowerment I feel now is incomparable to any other. It's a sensation that not only makes me feel more secure by the minute but also healthy.
Every day I pick something off my organic terrace garden that I use in my meal the very same day. It's exciting and yet such a simple truth of life that the urban folk have become enstranged to. Such that now growing a part of what we eat is more exotic than anything else.
To me it's a simple truth. An age old way of life that we forgot over time.
This Orange fennel rice that came about as an inspiration from the fennel greens we harvested.
This thupka we cooked as dinner in celebration of the cabbage we harvested after such a long wait.
And this lovely tomato and beetroot soup with stirred crunchy beans and cherry tomatoes with loads of herbs like basil, thyme and rosemary was our dinner tonight to celebrate all that our life had become because we grow so much food. The fresh coriander herbs turned into a tasty chutney that married perfectly with dose for breakfast.
