It's a great experience walking into your garden and picking the ingredients for your meal. I used the squash, peppers, and tomatoes for an amazing omelet.
If you don't have a garden, try growing one next year. Easy items include tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, and basil. I tried sweet potatoes this year, however, the rabbits got to it before I did.
If you've never had a garden before, I can guarantee this: no green thumb required!
