You might not have a green thumb yet, but that’s all about to change! Can you imagine heading out to your garden and picking fresh basil to add to your pasta sauce tonight? Or perhaps growing your very own tomatoes and lettuce to make a salad to go with your pasta dish? Well, that’s exactly what got me excited about growing my own food.

Growing food plants can be so rewarding, though it is not unusual that some plants will not thrive in your growing conditions. Please don’t be afraid of having failures in the garden. The garden is forgiving and generous with a few care tips. The important part is to give it a go and find out which edible plants will grow best for you in your garden. 

I’m a backyard gardener who is passionate about growing food. Along the way, I’ve discovered how rewarding edible gardening can be and I want to share that with you here.

Happy food gardening,

Jo Harrison
