I still can’t believe how fast everything is growing in our garden. It’s just like cooking, a little this, a little that and poof, fresh food! The kids have gotten in the habit of filling their water buckets to water everything from the tomatoes, carrots, kale, beans, strawberries and more. We’ve only had one casualty, the tomatillo seeds we planted in a place we forgot to water, woops! Live and learn. We even planted pumpkin seeds that will hopefully arrive in early fall, just in time for Halloween.

So far in the past 2 weeks we’ve made salad with a variety of lettuces the kids got to pick on their own. Cilantro for guacamole, thyme to roast a chicken, basil that we chopped for a tomato olive compote over grilled fish and even lemon verbena lemonade that was a big hit. I’m starting to feel like there’s a little green in my thumbs, but I’ve still got a long way to go! Here’s a few more things we all learned recently from Lauri, our garden mentor from Edible Gardens LA:

  1. Lauri is the best! She is an amazing gardner and cook! So happy to see her working here with weelicious!

  2. Where would you suggest we START for the edible garden process? We just bought a house and live in Miami, FL so we have warm climate year-round. No idea where to even begin, though, do we just put seeds in the ground? Thanks!
