Growing your own food is a hands-on way to lower your foodprint. With April in full swing, it’s time to start planning and planting, even if all you have is a windowsill with a patch of light. We have all the resources you’ll need to pick your seeds and plot out your growing season, no matter how much space you’ve got.
It’s spring, and you’re finally beginning to spy some greens, asparagus, leeks, radishes and more at the market. We break down what you’ll see at this time of year, how to cook it all, and what tastes good in combination. Hint: what grows together, goes together.

We explain it all, including which groups are dubious about the various products and why.
