Happiness is...

having a salad from your own garden in mid-October!

We had a wonderful salad to go with the lamb masala that dh made last night. In the salad were, all from our own garden: celery, oak-leaf lettuce, frisee (curly chicory; some call it endive), dill, parsley, beet greens, spinach, and cilantro. Veggies, and herbs, are incomparable when eaten within a half-hour of being picked.

As I was washing the dill, its intoxicating aroma made me realize why ds#2 eats it like candy straight out of the garden. It's really tasty stuff! Either that, or, as dh says, ds#2 is nuts. Both are equally plausible.
