Culinary Adventures Start In Your Garden

LITITZ, Pa., May 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Themed gardens can be a ton of fun for gardeners who are looking to try something new, not only in the garden but also in the kitchen. There are many different kinds that can be planted with the purpose of a specific recipe or culinary trend.

Basil-Based Themes

Basil plants can give you the basics for several themed gardens all summer long. Basil is one of the most accessible herbs and is prolific in its growth. It can be grown anywhere: in flower gardens, vegetable gardens, in pots, even indoors.

A pesto garden is the perfect start for using basil. Pesto is an Italian tradition with a simple list of ingredients: basil, crushed garlic, grated hard cheese, pine nuts and a little olive oil. It's a great sauce for pasta but can also be used on crackers as an appetizer or as a condiment on almost anything. Pesto is particularly tasty in a panini sandwich and can be used as a spread in any sub or hoagie.

Planting for a tomato caprese garden gives the culinary adventurer an additional use of basil, but adds the requirement of planting Roma tomatoes. Use these two simple ingredients, add mozzarella cheese, drizzle with a balsamic vinaigrette and the culinary adventure is well on its way.

Themed Gardens for Kids

Kids and grandkids will enjoy planting themed gardens and will be more motivated to stay involved with gardening as they serve up delicious culinary delights to the rest of the family.

A ketchup garden is simple to plant: onions and beefsteak tomatoes are the main ingredients for delicious homemade ketchup. And, what kid doesn't love any kind of ketchup? Kids can create their own culinary adventures by making sweeter versions with a pinch of sugar added, or they can add a kick by stirring in hot sauce or sriracha.
