Baby food from the garden
The garden generates a greater amount of utility when there is an infant to feed. Growing one’s own vegetables provides the assurance that food is as safe as it can be. Knowing that my vegetables are pesticide free is a comfort that I enjoy to a great degree.
As for growing food for your tiny one(s), it does not get any easier than growing carrots and peas. Since it was time to introduce carrots to my son, I went ahead and plucked a couple of ‘Scarlet’ carrots. Nothing is more fun than pulling carrots out of the ground. What would be even more fun is if there was a vacuum sealed popping sound when a carrot is plucked.
Steaming (as opposed to boiling) retains more of the nutrients.
Peas take more effort and gives little yield when the pod and pea skins are removed. In the future, I am thinking about using the whole pod; and a mechanical chopper.
It is fresh when the colors are bright/ neon.
