When Tamar Haspel and her husband lived in Manhattan, growing their own food was not even a choice.

That changed when they moved to Cape Cod, and decided to grow vegetables and raise chickens. Haspel self-bestows the term of "crappy gardener," but she gave it her all, a story she tells in the book To Boldly Grow: Finding Joy, Adventure, and Dinner in Your Own Backyard.
