 This summer, I've been gifted a bounty of vegetables, fruits and herbs as I live the audacious idea of eating all the fresh food in front of me.

My friend Cat, whose actual name I do not know, alone has given me marjoram and tarragon, zucchini, green beans and fresh lettuce. Our gathering point is at a bar and I inevitably start eating immediately. Turns out fresh green beans and lettuce goes well with a gin and tonic.

I used the marjoram, along with olive oil and lemon, on a spatch-cocked chicken over the grill. I like tarragon with orange so I slathered a couple of chicken breasts with the spice along with both juice and grated orange rind and grilled that, too.

Others have given me cherry tomatoes, regular tomatoes, sweet corn and cucumbers. My new favorite cucumber dish is vinegar cucumbers, perfect on a hot day. The tomatoes? I make sandwiches of them like my mom used to make. Toast some bread, butter the toast, take sliced tomatoes and smash them into the bread, finish with salt, pepper and some mayo and you'll have the taste of summer in  your mouth.

My neighbors, the Kozachs, leave a surprise veggie bag at my door now and then. One of the tomatoes they left was so freshly picked it was still warm. The green beans wet from the sprinkler.

All fresh. All healthy. All real food.

But the better bounty is this group of friends I've developed, who feed me not with just fresh veg but with love.

Peace unto Ukraine and peace and fresh veg unto all of you my brothers and sisters.


  1. I didn't believe a hacker could actually hack a credit score until I contacted HACKWEST AT WRITEME DOT COM. West boosted my FICO score and erased all the negatives as well as inquiries from my report in less than two weeks. He did this without any extra cost and until then no red flag. I was able to apply for a loan which I have used to get myself a car and I also have a moderate house for my family with low interest rate. I will always recommend anyone who desires a sincere credit repair to contact Hack West and thank me later. Do let West know Jonathan Godby referred you.


  2. Need Help To Recover Lost Crypto funds? Contact Captain WebGenesis.

    A phishing scam was used by an imposter pretending to be a celebrity artist to steal $204,700 worth of cryptocurrency from my Trust wallet. I was helpless, depressed, and ready to do anything to get my money back. I used all essential methods, but to no avail. I came across numerous glowing testimonials for Captain WebGenesis, a company that helps most victims of financial fraud recover their money. I took action and made contact with the professional. Fortunately, all of my misplaced money was found and returned to my wallet. I wholeheartedly recommend Captain WebGenesis to all victims of scam who want their money returned.
