Summer Garden Tour

This year's summer garden went in a little late because of the transition to the new locale, but it is now in and thriving!  Cherry tomatoes, okra, and cucumbers are just starting to put out...  But melons, peppers, eggplant, sweet potatoes, corn, beans, pumpkins, and other tomatoes are still to come!  Check it out in the slideshow below.  I'll be sharing more details on how each one went in and how it's doing as the season progresses.

Shoots and Platters has been on a long-term hiatus for the past 8 months or so...  but, we are back!  And now at a new location...  Thank you all for sticking with us.  Derek and Amanda will be cooking up dishes from the veggies in their backyard garden from now on.  Amanda's curbside garden has been passed down into good hands and continues to produce good food from curb to table, but no longer by Amanda.

We are excited to share our gardening and cooking adventures with you from our new locale!
