Asian Stock & Simple Soup

March 27, 2012


via Waltham Fields Community Farm blog: So it was too good to be true (the incredibly warm weather we just experienced, that is). Like a touch of summer to be relished amidst the transition from winter to spring, the heat came and went, and we are now back to the reality of chilly springtime weather […]

Beautiful Stories of an American Agrarian Renaissance

March 25, 2012


Oh man. This site/org is right up my alley. How do they make money doing this? Or rather, do they make money doing this? I do not know. But I sure hope they keep on doing what they do. Perhaps we need an organization like this in the Northeast… Anyone looking to start a project […]

Time to get growing

March 21, 2012


It’s as if the universe, in all of her majesty, somehow knows that a) it is my birthday (week), b) it is my Spring Break, and c) I’m itching to get down and dirty in the Learning Garden. The weather has been absolutely glorious up here in the Northeast, and I’m trying to take advantage […]

So I decided to post a recipe for kimchi I recently tried out. Featuring cabbage, carrot, pear, and daikon radish seasoned with ginger, garlic, and […]

Is Spaceship Earth* trying to tell us something?

March 14, 2012


*I’ve been using this phrase ever since I watched Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soapbox on Netflix several months ago. I recommend it. You’ll definitely laugh, and a part of you will probably cry. It’s fun. And the sound of the phrase brings a Ziggy Stardust David Bowie to mind, which always brightens my day. Love Bowie. […]

Homemade Yogurt

March 12, 2012


The sun is out, the temps are up, kids are playing in the streets, and the flock of chickadees inhabiting the hedge that divides my neighbors’ back yards are singing with all their might. At risk of being slightly premature, I will say that spring has SPRUNG in Massachusetts, and I could not be a […]
