The taste of freshly picked homegrown food is great! Working in the dirt grounds us, is therapeutic and really helps us to appreciate where good food comes from. The amazing biodiversity (as in the thousands of varieties of tomatoes or beans that exist for example) available to us is not properly represented in grocery stores and it never will be.
The amazing thing about growing plants is the diversity out there. There is no such thing as “normal” beans, or “normal” tomatoes! Scratch the word normal from your vocabulary. Each variety has it’s own character, just like people! There is resilience and stability in diversity. Tomatoes ranging in colour, shape, size, taste, texture, growth habit, you choose. Diversity keeps things fun, fascinating and exciting!
