This sounds like a fantastic opportunity to green up your yard, or freshen up the produce in your house! We've been so interested in growing our own basil, parsley and mint. At this event, we may grab some more complicated vegetables and see if we can stretch our green thumbs a bit further so that we always have some sort of fresh off the vine, branch or whatever you call it - produce to eat or cook with at the ready!
