Anyone who has tried their hand at gardening knows that sometimes no matter how hard you try, some plants just don’t do well. You can fertilize regularly, amend the soil with all sorts of nutrients, water consistently, and still sometimes fail. It can be very discouraging and maybe even make you consider giving up on that plant, or worse, gardening altogether. I know because I’ve been there. Now for a little story.
Believe it or not, I did not eat radishes until a few years ago. I always thought they were beautiful, but I was someone who ate around them when I found them in my salads. In fact, it was gardening that sparked my interest in the vegetable after years of avoiding them.
Ah, grocery shopping for one. How many of us have experienced the struggle? Anything prepackaged is frequently overly processed, and buying in bulk is difficult without having at least some of it go bad- especially if we’re buying organic. It seems like most bunches of fresh vegetables in the grocery store or farmers markets are catered to couples. Cue the oh so convenient and delicious frozen chicken nuggets and ovenbake pizzas (guilty).
