It's spring in Houston which is quite wonderful. Actually, we only have two seasons here: nice and hell. The nice months are wonderful (October to May) and summer is just something we try to survive. After a fairly stressful winter- it was cold and the construction workers trampled everything in our entire yard- I am back in the garden. We have started our seeds, got the beds rebuilt and turned, the compost is recomposing and we are almost ready to get our garden on!
I have been studying the gardening patterns of Houston and I am excited about my new gardening calendar from Houston Grows.
Pretty soon, we will have the following vegetables: leeks, beets, green onions, lettuce, arugula, turnips, radishes, garlic, peppers, heirloom yellow tomatoes, cabbage, broccoli, collard greens, carrots and more!
I'll update you with pics of my new babies and recipes! I hope you find time and a little bit of space to start your own garden.
Welcome to my blog!!! I am a foodie, but also a healthie, so I decided to share tasty and healthy recipes with you. If you know me, you'll wonder why I called this blog the "ChunkyChef." If you really know me, you'll understand that I like "whole foods" and am a lazy chopper so all my foods have really chunky bits. Enjoy!!
