If your pockets are empty and you want a feeling of tremendous abundance, take your kitchen container and wander around the garden/yard and pick a little from here and there until you have enough: some tips from the fall-planted pea vines, a few sprigs of the fennel planted by Lynn a couple of years ago, leaves from the sorrel--a gift from Teresa before she moved, a handful of purslane (a common garden weed), a fistful of kale, a good-size bunch of Arugula that volunteered, a bit of dill (also a volunteer), blossoms from the calendula that grows wherever it's not actively pulled up once it is seeded, blue borage blossoms (they are new in my garden this year, but I understand they do the same) and a whole color wheel of tomatoes.
Only the tomatoes took any care on my part to grow and even half of them were gifts from friend Susan. Nearly everything came from the good heart of another person or just grew up on its own (volunteered).
