Gardening and Cooking?

FebMarch2015Organic Gardening Magazine just published their “keepsake” issue and it was an interesting read. So many ideas that have roots (excuse the pun) that go back further than I could have imagined are now coming to the forefront.

But, one quote did cause me some trepidation. An interview from 2010 with Michael Pollan quoted him as saying, “I don’t think you garden unless you’re going to cook.”

Boy, that rubbed me the wrong way. I’ve tried to track it down and see if it was taken out of context. So far, no luck. Has anyone else seen this quote or know anything about it? Could it really be possible that this is what he thinks?

We may just have to get in touch with him to clarify this, if no one else can give me some context in it. Leave a comment or email me at
