Part of cooking from the garden and using lots of fresh vegetables with our plant-based diet is that we generate plenty of peelings, pits, stems, skins, etc. every week. We used to directly compost these raw vegetable scraps, but then we realized that we could so easily make our own vegetable broth. Since we were already frustrated by the sodium content and priciness of canned vegetable broth, this was an epiphany! So now we accumulate the scraps for about a week in a container in the refrigerator and then make broth. We use the broth to cook rice, soup, sauce bases, etc. Any extra we freeze in Pyrex glass containers. It is so good!

We were recently walking around the downtown Phoenix Roosevelt Arts District and came upon this wonderful complex of gardens and an artists’ boutique. The Roosevelt Growhouse began in November of 2008 as a collaboration between two artists, Kenny Barrett and Kelly Placke, and as a partnership with the Roosevelt Row Community Development Corporation. It’s original focus was current creative activity on the community-based politics of food. The Growhouse functions as collaborative art, performance and social experiment.  They created a vegetable garden in a visible location, reclaiming neglected public space in the right-of-way.  The project  demonstrated growing food (in lieu of a lawn) and encouraged others to do the same. http://kennybarrett.com/growhouse/?page_id=2


In February of 2011 the Roosevelt Row Community Development Corporation, a 501c3 nonprofit, adopted the Roosevelt Grow Collective Garden at the Growhouse as part of their vacant lot activation program called A.R.T.S. (Adaptive Re-use of Temporary Space). Today, the urban farm is a place to learn about urban desert farming, sustainable living, healthy eating and edible landscaping. The garden prides itself on providing fresh veggies to markets and cafes within blocks of where they were grown. http://thegrowhouse.blogspot.com

Photo above: We loved the deeply mulched trench gardening at the Roosevelt Growhouse. Our own kitchen garden is planted in sunken beds, so it was great to see it done so successfully elsewhere! It was inspiring to see this particular sunken bed planted densely with tomatoes that shaded each other. Plus, they received further relief from the desert  summer sun in the partial shade of palm trees planted to the south.

This has been a great year for peaches! We have two trees: one is a Mid-Pride (pictured above) and the other is Eva’s Pride. The Eva’s were ripe in June -  a few weeks before the Mid-Pride - so that extended the season nicely.


We’ve enjoyed many peach crisps, plus we’ve frozen peach crisp filling for future peachless times. Filling: Mix well in a large bowl: sliced peaches, date sugar (or maple syrup), a little lemon juice and a couple of Tbsp cornstarch mixed in cold water. Slide it all into a large pot and simmer until peaches are just cooked but still have good color. Stir occasionally as the cornstarch thickens it up slightly. Put that into a baking dish, leaving room at the top for crisp topping.

Crisp topping: about a cup of quick oats, a cup of whole wheat flour, and a 1/2 cup of ground-up walnuts or almonds (food processor!), maple syrup to taste, cinnamon to taste. Stir well. Add a bit of water until it all clings together a little.

Drop clumps of the crisp topping onto the filling and gently spread it around. Bake at 350 about half an hour - it goes pretty fast, especially if the filling is hot already. Enjoy!
