kitchen garden

"Oak eat-in kitchen," it really is as hideous as it sounds, and I haven't even told you about the counter tops.

So, where does this connect to a garden journal. Well, most garden harvest first enters through the kitchen, whether it be edible or decorative.

I would like better access directly into the kitchen. There is a kitchen door to the east side of the house, but there is little to no yard on that side. The kitchen garden is on the west side and entry is through the mudroom.

When I zoned the garden I plotted the kitchen garden closest to the main pathway to the house and the closest entry to the kitchen.
