​Hey, fellow urban gardeners! 

You have a passion for cooking with the freshest produce.

You love the idea of growing some of it yourself.

But you struggle because you live in a tiny space. 

Don't let busy city living stop you from growing tasty food. It didn't stop us. 

Eric (Chef Iggy) is a professionally-trained chef. Phaedra is a business and food writer, editor and author. We have always loved the fresh produce from our home state of Virginia, but shopping at the farmer's market started getting a little expensive. Too expensive. 

Several years ago, we began converting our kitchen porch and city backyard into a full-on urban garden, one seed at a time. We decided to start Kitchen Plot to help more urbanites grow local food.
