I have a passion for gardening, specifically for growing edible plants. It started young, when my grandma used to walk with me through her vegetable gardens. In college I had the good fortune of living in several houses that featured edible landscapes and upon purchasing a home I ripped out the yard and put in gardens. I am an urban gardener, want-to-be “farmer” so there are some limitations, but I am currently learning how to get around them.
When I cannot garden, I fill my time with cooking. I like to create dishes from scratch. Not only do I enjoy creating dishes from my own bounty, I also enjoy sitting down to eat a delicious meal with my hubs.
The hubs is helping me with this adventure. He is trying all of the food…I really have to twist his arm. He is also the photographer for many of the garden shots. Last but not least, he is the muscle behind much of the heavy lifting!
Oh! And we are not alone, the yard dogs accompany us every step of the way, and often get to eat more from the garden than us. They have learned to graze when mom and dad are not looking. In particular, they have taken over the strawberry patch and all raspberry picking below waist height!
