the first fruits

"Sometimes Pangloss would say to Candide: 'All events form a chain in this, the best of all possible worlds. After all, had you not been expelled from a beautiful castle with great kicks to the behind for the love of Mademoiselle Cunegonde, and had you not been turned over to the Inquisition, and had you not roamed American on foot, and had you not run the Baron through with a fine thrust of your sword, and had you not lost all your sheep from the good land of Eldorado, you would not be sitting here now eating candied citron and pistachios.' - 'That is well said,' replied Candide, 'but we must cultivate our garden.'"

it's not much yet, just some lettuce, kale, and peas, but it sure is rewarding to get to harvest something that you helped produce.
