I am a Gardener. I actually just started. Although I’ve been tinkering around at growing things over the last 10 years. I officially have a seed starting setup in my basement, 4 raised beds, an assortment of vessels to grow things in and a creative drive that lends itself towards chaos at times. My goal and biggest desire in my gardening is to have it be beautiful to the eye as well as successful in growth- hence a Potager Garden.
This year I will get my kids involved in the gardening process. We will be planting a Pizza Garden and of course it will be in the style of a Potager Garden- lovely to the eye.
I will also document the processes that contribute to a better garden or an Eco friendly garden and periodically share recipes that are composed of vegetables, herbs and/or fruits from the garden.
As our garden begins to produce an overabundance I will then begin to can, freeze and perhaps dehydrate our goods in order to enjoy them throughout the winter and to cut down if not eliminate grocery runs. Also, I will be participating in a Fruit and Vegetable CSA this year and document my experience with that.
