|Tomato sauce, Mint, Butter-fried peas from our garden!|
However, a goal of raising a little bit of food is doable by anyone with a yard.
Our yard is big enough that we might be able to include a little bit of food from our garden in a meal every day, and a stretch goal would be to include a little something in every meal.
Mint in our coffee, greens in our salad, and during the growing season whatever happens to be ready can stretch our food budget and give pleasure.
Here in Seattle, we're blessed with a moderate climate so that even in the winter we can get a little chard and wintergreen; we also love to enjoy the time-shifted sunshine of canned tomatoes. Figuring it all out takes organization and experimentation, but what a fun way to enjoy wholesome, organic, locally-produced food at a very reasonable price!
