My short experience at Just Roots for the fall semester was so incredible. I witnessed many vegetables I had never seen before and I experienced many sensations I previously missed in this lifetime. I am glad to have them now! Here are some of my favorite things:
Touching the soft yet particulate dirt on your hands as you pull up a big fat beet from the land.
Hearing the rain pitter patter on the plastic sides of the greenhouse while you are warm and dry and planting lavender.
Seeing a little bit of a potato hidden in the upturned soil as you search the rows for potatoes that were missed during harvest
Tasting a fresh slice of watermelon radish for the first time WAHOO
And Smelling the sweet strong earthy smell of a carrot plucked from the ground is just perfectly divine. Ain’t nothin like it!
