Welcome to Fresh From the Garden! I developed a love for cooking many years ago, and often experiment with new flavors and ideas.  For as long as I can remember, my family has always grown their own fruits and vegetables.  Meals were always delicious and vibrant with flavor.  Once I began cooking for my own family, I realized that many grocery store produce items were lacking in flavor.  So, I began to search for local farmers and farmer’s markets.  However, this became a hassle because there were so few local farmers.  So, I started my own garden!  I love walking right into my backyard to pick fruits, vegetables, and herbs for meals.  I hope you enjoy the recipes that I post and I encourage everyone to write in with their own experience.  Happy cooking!
