Your guide to creating an Edible Eden has arrived in today's Washington Post, by someone who's built and tended gardens for a long time – Adrian Higgins. "Relatively cheap to build, whimsical in form and ultimately productive, the vegetable garden can be the sweetest place on Earth."
It's packed with super-useful details and arrayed beautifully on the front page of the new Local Living section (love it), and I hope you can see it in print. If not, that link takes you to something else altogether. You have to click "This Story" in the left, then "View all items in this story" to read the parts of it separately. And so on.
