To get to the gorgeous bounty of summer ...
While the snow was still piled up outside, I dug up the weeds that had taken root in the beds, swept the debris off the floor, and cut down all of last year's support strings.
If all goes according to plan, it won't be too long before these little seedlings turn into tall and prolific vines...
... and then the fun really begins! I can't wait to take you along with me as the farm year progresses. I want to show you all the tricks I've learned to preserve healthy, fresh, organically-grown food, and even more importantly, the techniques I've developed to cook with frozen, dried or canned produce so that it's still bright, flavorful and delicious! It's cheaper, it's faster, it's lower impact on the planet, it lasts so much longer than fresh, and it's better for you than a fresh veggie that's traveled halfway round the world! All good, right? So stay tuned!
Now, back to the garden! See you next time!
