This post brought to you by Nature's Care. All opinions are 100% mine. If you've been following Unsophisticook for awhile, you might recall that we added some raised garden beds to the sunny side of our home last spring.

We've had somewhat cooler weather the past few days, so I seized the opportunity to plant some flowers before the summer heat really hits.

After last year's failed attempt at container gardening, I wasn't sure if I wanted to attempt a garden this summer. I really wanted to get another Backyard Botanical Oasis, but the size was too large for the sunniest part of our yard, and sadly, the smaller version is no longer produced. In the end, we […]

Though we're only two weeks into our first CSA share, I have to say that I'm really enjoying the challenge that it's provided -- trying new foods, reacquainting myself with others, and searching for new ways to prepare old standbys. While the weekly cost is probably more than what I spent previously on produce at […]

As part of our family's commitment to eating more healthful and locally grown foods, we decided to purchase a share in a CSA. For the next 25 weeks, we'll be receiving weekly deliveries of various fruits and vegetables from the Wayward Seed Farm in Marysville, Ohio. I'm excited about this for a number of reasons, […]
