We live in zone 6a and I have been gardening and cooking for years. This blog is an opportunity for me to share with you my success and those failures that come about on occasion. Plus, I want to hear from all the gardeners and bakers and cooks out there and learn from you. Feel free to share your ideas.

    1. That sounds like a really cool event! We have some gardening workshops in Vancouver that happen at various places, but none of them are daylong free events on this scale.
