We’re in Yorkville, Illinois, visiting with Anita Drendel again. We saw some photos of her garden in the GPOD recently, and she’s back to share more of her favorites from the past few years.
Here’s where some of those vegetables come from—a productive raised bed. This bed is full of cool-season vegetables like lettuce and cabbage, no doubt to be switched out for summer crops like tomatoes and peppers as the weather warms.
