This isn't a little basic of kale*, peas and eggs.
This is power.
Power in a basket.
Power to tell the food agri-economy to go [lightly] fuck themselves. Power to make your own food out of what you grow and put into it. Power to produce a meal and a snack from your own hard work and efforts.
I picked this basket to show because the sugar pod peas were saved from last years seed, the kale was reseeded from last year's harvest and the eggs came from my perpetually hard working ladies.
I have other things in the garden that are starting to produce, but this little basket of wonders was as removed from the industrial food chain as humanly possible for me. No driving to the store for seed. No ordering from a catalog (although plenty of the stuff coming from the garden is from a catalog. I'm not gonna hate.)
I was just struck with the insanity of complete food independence and snapped a pic.
Because I'm a rampant dork weed who get's off on this kind of shit.
*I hate kale and I even ate this stuff just to show the backyard I could.
