Garden Vegetable Soup with Rice

It may be spring but in my book there is never a bad time for soup. It's especially nice when you can grow yor own veggies or get them locally from a farmers' market. While we're not quite there yet, this is a great soup to make anytime. It's hearty and healthy and just plain hits the spot!
