It’s hard to believe Twice as Tasty is now 3 years old. Like a quickly growing child, it seems that just yesterday this blog was taking its first baby steps. But a scroll through the recipe index makes the 3-year growth spurt clear. Whether you’ve just found this blog or have been part of the core group of supporters, thank you for joining me on this adventure.

It’s time: Uncover beds, clean up the garden, thin the berry patches, pull the season’s first weeds, and plant seeds and starts. Gardening season has begun.
Although your mind might be reeling with the to-do lists that will get your garden up and running, give a little thought to where its bounty is going: table, fridge, freezer, pantry, and more. I’ve already loaded the blog with lots of information to help you enjoy what you’ve grown—now and later. But you’ll get an even bigger jump-start on the season with a Twice as Tasty Live workshop. You’ll learn more, faster, among friends, and with my personal help. This week’s post highlights some of the best workshops to get on your calendar this summer. As days grow longer, my schedule gets tighter, so pick your topics and contact me soon to set up your personalized workshop for the summer season.

In their place, summer produce is ready to burst forth, launching itself into the annual race to grow faster than I can harvest and process.
If you’ve been following along on Instagram, you’ve seen how I deal with spring’s vegetable bounty: #dailysalad. But with a large garden, summer vegetables need a different approach.

Here’s how I’ll be spending the next few weeks.
