Community garden's unusual harvest

September 18, 2011 |  6:36 am

A 10-year-old community gardener in Oak Park has a plan.

Daniel Cashdan is trying to grow a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

The blackberries have been picked and made into the jelly, and the wheat seedlings have been started at home. The peanuts, however, have become meals for the squirrels that live in the undergrowth around nearby Medea Creek.

The Times' Home blog has details on Daniel's quest for the perfect PB&J.
