About Us

My husband Bill and I started our first garden in 2006, after tearing down an old rusty shed in our suburban-Detroit backyard.  Rather than plant grass in the bare spot that was left, we mixed some organic nutrients into the clay soil, laboriously chopped up the roots of a long-dead tree, and created a garden made up of four beds.  We found multi-colored concrete blocks buried randomly around our backyard, so we used those to create footpaths between the beds. Each year since then, we’ve organically grown a variety of veggies and berries.  We’ve expanded the edible garden to two additional beds:  one next to our garage, and one along the side of our house.  As we reap our bounty each year, we like to experiment with new recipes and re-make our favorites. We are not experts in gardening or cooking; we are merely teachers with a summertime hobby, and we like to share our tips, recipes and excess zucchini.   Take what you’d like from this site, and have fun with it!–Julie
