Brief: Show us something you cherish, and get up close.
I love my trug and treasure it so much I went out and bought another one. You see, not only is it a cool gardening item, possibly on the luxury list, and not a necessary item. You can harvest your crop into a bag or plastic bowl, however it seems like a bit of an indignity for food you have lovingly lavished attention on for months and months. A trug is like rolling out the red carpet for the real treasures. Gems and delights that taste so magnificent you couldn’t put a price on them.
Tonight we are having the majestic roast fennel for dinner that is only moments old before it gets into the oven. My garden is full of treasure – everywhere you look and even buried treasure with golden potatoes and diamond quality carrots!
