Plant ... Grow ... Eat! You CAN have an edible garden. Gardening can nourish not only your body, but your mind. The image is a white eggplant - learn about this and other edible plants!
Prepare delicious meals from your harvest - they look good and are good for you and your family. Pictured is a simple toothpick Caprese salad of tomatoes and basil wrapped around Mozzaralla.
I remember my grandmother, well. She grew things and cooked things - wonderful things in the kitchen. I looked backward for gardening and cooking lore, and found a future more than 3 decades ago. I always loved gardening but was not always successful at it. "Trowel and Error" have been my teachers! If I found a new-to-me herb, fruit or vegetable I wanted to try growing it and have been very successful, in part because of the wonderful Tuscany/Provence type climate the Phoenix desert offers.
I want to show any and everyone that you can grow some or all of your own food and it does not have to be a $20 tomato - gardening is simple, we make it difficult sometimes. So try even if it is just a 2 foot wide container to begin with.
NEW: I am excited to publish my first Wall Calendar dedicated to the Desert Gardener with Month-By-Month planting info and gardening tips. A preview is available - it will serve you no matter what part of the year you purchase it!
