Kitchen Garden Day!
We share a garden with two other neighbor families and yesterday we had a dinner party in the garden in celebration of World Kitchen Garden Day. If you are wondering what that is, you are not alone. I had never heard of it either, but luckily my neighbor knew about it and planned the dinner. We each made something with food that we grew in our garden. The food was amazing and we had a great time eating with our neighbors in the lovely garden.
This is what the World Kitchen Garden website says about the celebration:
"Kitchen Garden Day is an annual, decentralized celebration of food produced on a human-scale. It is recognized each year on the 4th Sunday of August. It is an opportunity for people around the world to gather in their gardens with friends, family, and members of their local community to celebrate the multiple pleasures and benefits of home-grown, hand-made foods."
