The story of our edible garden. (born January 29, 2013)
by Cuci Amador

I've always wanted to grow my own food. My research online in January led me toward protecting your plants from frost. I couldn't find any info tailored to our tropical climate. so i added one more word to my search: Miami.
The first name that came up was Ready-to-grow gardens. I emailed and Dylan from Ready to Grow called and arranged to come over the next day. He consulted me regarding what I wanted to grow and what would be the best way to go about it. I had my heart set on sweet potatoes but he advised we should start small because sweet potatoes overgrow a yard quickly. We decided on a 4x8ft raised bed garden. The wood for the frame is salvaged from a miami dock. All the soil for our garden is composted earth.We chose a mix of veggies and herbs, like spinach, kale, swiss chard and tomatoes, about 15 diff varieties in total. They even installed an irrigation system so our garden won't wilt away when we travel or sleep in or both. It's been amazing watching it grow day by day.
