This season I’ll be joining forces with local urban farmers, Green City Growers. Each month, Green City Growers will feature a new fruit or vegetable on their site, along with tips for growing and caring for it. I’ll bring that same fruit or vegetable into my kitchen and show you how to turn it into something delicious!
It’s hard to imagine that a little over two months ago, I was standing on a rooftop farm with only the tiniest hints of plant life. The plots were freshly planted with radishes, kale and lettuces—small specks of green that would eventually make their way to the Whole Foods below.
I went back last week on a steamy 90-degree day, and was completely shocked by how the farm had transformed. There were snap pea plants about 5 1/2-feet tall, peppers, tomatoes, baby eggplants, and beautiful bushy rows of rainbow carrots.
