Cook's Corner

Welcome to Cook’s Corner at California Gardens!

A garden isn’t always about aesthetics. While a flower garden in full bloom is sight to see, gardens can be designed for utility as well.

A vegetable garden is the perfect solution to reducing your carbon output. Every tomato you grow in your own yard is a tomato that doesn’t have to be shipped across the country before you get to eat it. Fruits and vegetables from your own yard, picked at their peak, are fresher, riper, and more flavorful than anything found on supermarket shelves.

Here at Cook’s Corner we’ll explore plant varieties that can be grown in your California Garden and delicious recipes to help you use your harvest.
