Our Machine Shed Gardens are in full bloom! This week we stopped by the Davenport Machine Shed to see what Chef Jeff was picking out of his garden. These days, he is picking over 50 pounds of tomatoes a day! He also has plenty of cucumbers and peppers to serve at fresh at the Shed! Stop in and try some of the fresh vegetables picked from the garden at your local Machine Shed.

This year The Machine Shed was excited to work with The Iowa Food and Family Project out at the Iowa State Fair. The Machine Shed Team helped to spread the word about where our food comes from and the importance of supporting local farmers.
This week we are featuring the Pizza recipe from page 154. What we love most about pizza is its versatility, it can be a vehicle for SO MANY flavors. This recipe is great because it gives the recipe for the sauce and the dough, but leaves the toppings up to the creator! Whatever you have fresh from your garden is fair game!
Check out our Pinterest board for ideas on what to put on your pizza! Don’t forget to cook along and share your photos with us on Facebook or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
This year we had a blast at the Wisconsin State Fair! Our fair food was a HUGE hit! Who could resist Bacon Wrapped Cheddar Melts. Check out our photos from the event, and try to hold out your excitement until next year to see what we create!
