From Seed to Plate

photos from 2014 gardening season

My love of gardening is no secret. The act of preparing the soil, planting a seed, watching it sprout, tending and nurturing the plants, harvesting the food to eat or put by, and beginning the cycle again, a little wiser from past experience. It is a magical cycle, and one that I never tire of.

The lovely Camilla approached me last fall about doing a little garden series on her blog. At first I was a little hesitant, I am no expert in the garden, I have learned simply by putting my hands in the dirt the first summer I was married, and over the years gaining more knowledge and experience. I said yes, but there was still a part of me that was unsure. When Camilla sent me the first questions for this four part series I was put at ease, it was like sitting down for a casual conversation with a good friend who was interested in learning a little more about how, and why I garden. I can do this I thought, and I did.

Today, the first post is up over on Camilla's very inspiring and beautiful blog. This year Camilla is planning to jump back into her garden, and as she shares this series, she will also share her progress in her own garden. It promises to be a fun, and exciting experience. If you feel like getting your hands a little dirty, and growing a few vegetables along the way, get out there in your garden and join us. You won't regret it.
