Ever wondered what the team at Just Vertical is growing in their gardens at home? Well, it’s high-time we put this blog post together. Consider it a sneak peak, ‘behind-the-curtain’ look at what we keep stocked up in our AEVAs and EVEs at home.
Let's kick things off with Megan, our resident salad queen. By day, she's busy managing our community at Just Vertical, but by night, she's cultivating the most amazing butterhead lettuce. She's a total green goddess, and we love her for it!
Next up, we have Patrick, our sales extraordinaire, and self-proclaimed Michelin-star chef. His herb of choice? Thyme! This versatile herb adds that extra oomph to any dish, and Patrick can't get enough of it. We're all eagerly awaiting his culinary masterpieces (and maybe an invite to dinner too!).
Our very own Kale King, Conner, has a surprise favorite in his garden. It's not kale, but cilantro! He's tired of buying slimy cilantro from big grocery stores, so he decided to take matters into his own hands and grow it at home. Now he's a taco-loving, cilantro-growing machine. Taco Tuesday, here we come!
Kevin, our COO and resident plant nerd, is all about spicy wasabi arugala. He loves trying out new and exciting varieties of herbs, veggies, and leafy greens in his AEVA. Kevin's motto? "If you can't handle the heat, get out of the kitchen!"
Chris, our Head of Marketing, knows a thing or two about pleasing people. That's why his favorite thing to grow is classic basil. He's an Italian at heart, and with a recipe for Sugo Italiano passed down from his Nonno, his home-cooked meals are out of this world. Fresh basil is the cherry on top of his already amazing dishes.
Last but not least, we have Akinsola, our marathon training superstar. He knows that staying healthy and active is key, so his go-to produce is fresh kale for his smoothies. He's the one who keeps us all in mint condition (pun intended!).
Even though we have a range of skill levels when it comes to gardening, we all share a love for growing fresh produce year-round in our AEVAs and EVEs. Not only does it reduce waste from our home cooking, but it also lets us share the joy of fresh produce with our friends and family. We can't get enough of it!
