Topic: Off the Clock
I was always amazed of the gardens from some of the chefs I had worked for in the past i.e.. Roland Liccioni and Alex Lee. I just wanted to be like them.
Patience, TLC, Water, Luck, and Sun I don't think there is an essential. That's the whole point of gardening. Grow what you want and enjoy the ride!
Venture beyond your garden gate. Are there any other nearby gardens you frequent, whether for ingredient sourcing or just to visit?
Definitely a great way to get inspired, motivated, shot at (just kidding).
The cooks get to have a better connection with food. It forces patience on you. The produce. Having some suds in the sun.
Not enough time, it becomes overwhelming (weeding, harvest, watering). Not patient, sabotage (insects)
