I just love a good bowl of soup! When the days are cool and crisp as they are now, I find a bowl of soup to be comforting. In addition to the feeling of comfort though, with the soup I made the other day there was also a feeling of accomplishment. This soup was almost all made with ingredients that we grew in our home garden. So, not only did it taste good because it was good, it tasted good because all our hard work had helped to make it.
From our garden into the soup: Carrots, Green Beans, Peas, Onions, Tomatoes and the Green onion tops. The only other things in there that didn’t come from the garden was the meat, spices and potatoes. Living in the heart of Maine potato country, you’d think I’d grow my own, right?!?
Next year, we plan on trying a few new things in the garden. Herbs and spices will be something new, although I need to do some research on what will grow in our area of the country, since it’s a short growing season.
Until next time…
