There’s nothing I look forward to more every summer than growing fruits and veggies. As a chef, I’m always so inspired by what I have growing right outside my door. The summer becomes a fun sort of mystery box challenge where I get to see what new things have magically ripened overnight and how to incorporate them into whatever dish I’ve decided to make that day.
For those who don’t garden or are just getting started, it can seem daunting and overwhelming. There are some really silly mistakes that we all make in the beginning, and can convince us we don’t have a “green thumb” or that growing food is impossible.
Every year around this time I have friends calling and texting asking garden advice, so this year I’ve decided I wanted to give everyone the chance to ask those plant questions that may be keeping you from having your dream garden. There’s nothing more rewarding than enjoying food you’ve grown at home.
Whether you’re looking to turn your whole backyard into a garden or just want to grow your favorite herbs, schedule a call with me and let’s talk plants!
If you are in the Greater Portland area, I am also available for in-home gardening classes for the whole family!
