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.
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.
