You taught us to believe in magic. You showed us that the world is full of amazing things, if we only take the time to look, to nurture them or to believe.
Last summer, I collected three magic beans and am growing a large beanstalk. It’s not quite tall enough for us to climb into the clouds, but in the meantime it is dripping with delicious and healthy bean pods that we savour at most meals.
These are my favourite vegetable to grow since the flowers are beautiful, and the beans are full of nutrients and are great for stocking the freezer.
Thank you for teaching me your love of plants, good food and wonder in the world.
Happy 60th birthday.
