Gifts from a gardener

I’m convinced that the cooks of this world greatly outnumber the kitchen gardeners !

There’s absolutely no sorrow in this situation for the gardener, because our gifts of kitchen garden produce can always find grateful recipients among the many cooks who provide us such pleasure at the end of a hard day’s work through the output of their kitchens.

To have both a cook and a gardener sharing the same kitchen and kitchen garden is one of life’s simple joys.

Freshly-picked, newly baked or home-preserved produce are gifts increasingly valued in a world accustomed to eating ‘factory food’; gardeners and cooks make treasured friends who are able to give of themselves in a unique fashion.
