Harvest

There is nothing quite like biting into a juicy tomato from your backyard. It's sweet, flavorful, and fresh in ways that the supermarket variety could never recreate. The peppers are crisp, and they look precious as you hold them in your palm. Each taste is the product of hot afternoons in the sun, mosquito bites, rainfalls, and dirt-covered knees. It's the satisfaction of saying, "I helped create this" and knowing that even so, it's a bit of a miracle that such things can spring to life and flourish in the city.
