Tammy Algood gets inspired by this grower who has planted out an intensive market garden plot on 1/4 acre to demonstrate how densely food crops can be grown. A lot of Reggie’s plants are started by seed in float beds commonly used in tobacco farming. Plus, Reggie has a very sensible and smart sales outlet for the herbs and vegetables.
For 2019, the farm stand plans to open on Fridays 2-5pm through October at St. Thomas Midtown Hospital, Nashville.
Tammy Algood — Tammy has loved to garden and cook her whole life. She wanted to spend as much time as possible with her Grandmother who gardened and cooked, so she learned at her knee. Tammy is a marketing specialist with the Tennessee Department of Agriculture. She has written numerous cookbooks, including Farm Fresh Southern Cooking and The Southern Slow Cooker Bible. “Being a host on Volunteer Gardener allows me to meld both of my passions into one activity…cooking from my garden.”
