I'm not sure that every gardener would consider photo shoots to be perks, but I love them because they are so different from my day-to-day.

I get to fluff my veggies and my hair, and have some fun.

Today we shot the cool season crops for the One Block Diet, specifically how to harvest.


Much against his will, I coaxed staff photographer, Tom Story, into demanding, "Give it to me," just like the movies (though it was somewhat unclear as to whether he was addressing me or the arugula).

And I pretended that photo editor, Linda Lamb Peters,was my stylist.

After the fun and games it was time to get to work harvesting the bed for Margo and her team of chefs. It looks so barren!
