I came across Linda’s blog five or six years ago when I was searching to find out if carrot tops were edible. When I came across her beautiful blog I was hooked from then on, and watched as she evolved from gardener to cookbook author. In addition to all of this, Linda is an avid outdoor enthusiast and goes to some pretty epic places in her region of the country with her husband and daughter. It was awesome to have Linda on the podcast to discuss her garden (she’s only been gardening 7 years, which meant she was relatively new to gardening when I first found her blog!) and to find out more about her cookbooks, The CSA Cookbook and The New Camp Cookbook. We had a great conversation and I think you will enjoy learning about her garden as well as hearing about some interesting edibles that you might not have thought about growing. Some day I will have to sit down with her to talk more about her epic outdoor adventures!
