eat it up, yum!

I'm on a food post kick lately. Maybe it's the thrill of summer produce getting me all excited about eating again... berries, asparagus, various peas, basil (though these days we grow our own), heirloom tomatoes! (coming soon).

If you're in the same boat, head on up to the New York Botanical Garden for The Edible Garden, an all-season-long celebration of food. The program kicks off this weekend with a local food festival. A shiny list of culinary celebs had their hand in the garden's program, including Martha Steward, Dan Barber, and Peter Hoffman.

While you're there, be sure to check out the Seed Savers Exchange edible landscape, proof that heirloom seeds make edible gardens both bountiful and beautiful.

Get the full scoop here.

My mouth is watering just thinking about it!
