How many local restaurants do you know of that grow some of the food they serve out back? What could possibly be fresher. Sunny Point Cafe in West Asheville does just that. They know exactly where their food comes from and what is in it or more to the point what is not in it or on it. One of these days I will manage to eat there.
I am liking these sturdy cattle fencing trellises. I could use something more substantial like this in my own roadside vegetable garden. Project. List.
Melissa Metz, the garden manager for Sunny Point discusses vital ideas with Frank Hyman. She graciously welcomed two busloads of garden bloggers to her garden with homemade lemonade and fresh baked biscotti from the cafe.

Then you get to eat some of the freshest, best tasting food in town.
