The age-old practice of growing and eating good food from a backyard garden  -- fresh fruits, veggies and herbs -- is alive and kickin' around here.

At least that was our take-away from the 2015 Sugar Beet Co-op Edible Garden Tour on Saturday, July 25.

Miss the tour?   Take it virtually now, via our latest DBB On-the-Road video.

Afterwards, get gardening.  It is the sweet pick-and-eat season of harvest, after all, and, of course, time to sow those cool season seeds to see a second harvest come Fall.
