Check out this terrific salad mix that Farmwall suggests, something I've been tinkering with this spring:
Geert Hendrix and Serena Lee are not your typical farmers, yet they may be archetypes for agricultural professionals of the future. The pair devised the innovative start-up Farmwall, a small-scale indoor farm offering for restaurants and cafes that allows chefs to grow and harvest their own herbs and microgreens in a space the size of a bookcase.
Sometimes, you just want a simple dish to use all those more exotic herbs you're experimenting with in the garden.
We've been growing a lot of Asian varieties lately, so here's a quick one that's really tasty too!
We all know that some ingredients go well together in a recipe (tomato and basil salad, anyone?) but did you know that the same goes in the gardening bed? Companion planting is the art of growing complementary plants in close proximity, and it’s something that all of us can try at home.
The Summer may be done… But not the Basil.
It’s a good problem to have, an abundance of fresh and fragrant summer Basil. So don’t let it go to waste when you’re making way for Autumn crops.
When it comes to gardening, we often tend to overlook one of the most important ingredients: soil. But while it might not be the most glamorous part of the growing process, soil is definitely one of the most important.
