Call me silly if you want–but I think the world would be a far better place if everyone grew at least one thing they could eat. 

Good pal Kristen is more than doing her part.  I was very impressed with her suburban summer vegetable garden and how much good food she’s packed in the small space along her back deck.   

Kristen didn’t grow up tending big vegetable gardens like Southern girls (blog partner) Melissa and I did. 

And she lives in an uptown Cary neighborhood, where pulling up grass to plant FOOD is pretty brave.  

I’m so proud of her for bucking the norm of perfect turf to grow food to feed her family. 

I’m proud all my friends who grow food at home. 

So show off your gardens.  I’ll put your pictures in upcoming posts.
