Having my own garden has always been high on my bucket list. I mean, what’s more ‘One Ingredient’ than growing and harvesting your own food straight from the soil? So when a 100 sq. ft. plot opened up at my local community garden last December, I had to jump on it… even though I had no gardening experience.
Like anything worth doing, there was a huge learning curve, a lot of hard work to be done, and not many results at first. But fast forward 4 months and many YouTube gardening tutorials later, and things have exploded… dozens of sugar snap peas, bok choy, radishes (daikon and red belle), beets, multi-colored carrots, and more salad greens than I could ever use – handfuls of spicy arugula, bags of fresh kale, bunches of crispy spinach, and a near-infinite amount of baby lettuce.
