A reason to plant…

garden 005

Okay, so there’s more than JUST one reason to plant a garden. It’s economical for sure. Free of harsh pesticides? You betcha. Another is the sweet contest fellow, and FAR superior, blogger/culinary author Michael Ruhlman is hosting on his site this summer. The “BLT From Scratch Challenge” is a call for entries to those who can put together the best interpretation of an all-American classic. Garden raised veggies, home-cured bacon/pancetta, made-from-scratch bread etc. Winners will be awarded one of Michael’s titles allegedly “signed in bacon fat.” All of the rules, categories and details can be found at Ruhlman’s site. Hopefully everyone has a lush, blossoming garden already. If not, it’s not too late! Turn that soil, get some dirt under your nails and turn those thumbs green!
