slow food baking and gardening

I have been on this site for over a month. I have baked all our bread. I can't see buying what I can do cheaper and better except for what I can't afford. I have a raised bed veggie garden. I am going again this spring. In the summer there's not much better than fresh bread & tomatoes or salad or greens or beans and onion. Fresh veggies always accompanied by fresh bread. I would to find a site like this in the gardening area. Fresh loaf is exceptional and that is what I am looking for in the gardening area. I do flowers, but food and getting the most out of my soil is what I am after. Just like the bread and the flour. Thanking you all in advance.
