Project Backyard Grocery: Summer garden plan

I started this blog because we got a garden plot and, for the first time in my life, had a lot of home grown veggies. I thought it would be fun to write about what I cooked with them. It’s only been a few short months, but the mission is becoming bigger and, frankly, funner.

Rick reclaimed brick from a friend's construction project and now we have nice brick pathways in the garden.

Happy Dawg watches as Rick works on our plot. She loves the garden.

The summer of 2011 we had our first garden plot at our community garden in Reston. It was a 10×10 space, and boy did it produce for us! I had the best lettuces, kale, spinach, tomatoes and peppers of my life. Rick had a wonderful time tending it, and we both realized we loved the notion of growing our own food. So, when we had the opportunity to move over to a 20×20 garden plot, Rick jumped on the opportunity.
