An Organic Meal from the Vegetable Garden at Home

Today my mother cooked four dishes for our lunch. Three vegetable dishes and a fried eggs with chives.  Except the two eggs, the other four vegetables were all from her vegetable garden.  They were delicious and we ate with the thought of comfort that they were all organic, free of petcides and other chemicals.

Sometime ago I read a post by a Chinese immigrant complaining that too many Chinese immigrants were planting too many vegetables and not enough flowers in their gardens, and criticized them for being cheap and not Westernized enough.

I think that being frugal is good for the environment.  By growing vegetables at home, we are saving carbon dioxide emission from transporting trucks and some driving trips to supermarkets, which are powered by electricity.
