Savory greens for salads, flavorful addition to meat dishes and Ah Pi’s favorite; one of the main ingredients in a delicious cold soup. Who knew common weeds could be this tasty? Now, this was not an anecdote made by one individual from one country. This was a claim verified by someone from each of the countries who were weeding that day. That means the countries of Burma, Vietnam, Colombia and China were all represented. Who knew that weeding could be so educational?
We laughed as people posed for pictures. We “chatted” as we worked, comparing our vegetables with the vegetables of other groups. Our plot gets a “thumbs up” except maybe for the carrots. We snacked on watermelon, grapes, and cookies. Who knew weeding could be so much fun?
Last week we harvested the radishes. It was hot and muggy and the ground was hard. This week we harvested the onions. We grew a lot of onions!! We are happy to give radishes and onions to the Food Bank. Who knew giving back could feel so good?
