Jen gets inspired by the Garden Girl

Check out this fantastic profile of Patti Moreno, aka Garden Girl, who has a ¾ acre urban farm in Roxbury, Massachusetts. The farm consists of more than 30 raised beds that Patti built herself and she even has chickens, goats and rabbits (from which she collects eggs and spins yarn!). Sounds like urban farming at its finest. Unfortunately the article doesn’t give Patti's address or show any pictures of the farm. Looks like I have a little investigating to do!

In the meantime, this morning I harvested my first Green Zebra heirloom from my modest single raised bed garden. It was delicious, all yellow and green. And word is the tomatoes at the farmers market are a mere $2 per pound--time to stock up and can and freeze!
