Few things are better than being able to eat what you grow. Not only do you know how it was grown, but there is a sense of accomplishment that comes from being able to simply go outside and pick your dinner. I would say the only thing better is when what you eat are lush greens that overwintered in the cold frame and are in their full abundance now. The sheer act of surviving frigid temperatures makes them a super food in my book.
Dinner last night was comprised of some sliced chicken on top of spicy arugula, butter lettuces, cannellini beans, avocado, tomato, and to top it off, some homemade toasted cornbread croutons. That with a chilled glass of white wine, is what I call a perfect homestead dinner.
