Organic Gardening

Try Organic Gardening Magazine’s website.  I’m recommending Eating with the Seasons by Lauren Sloane and The Pleasure of Eating by Wendell Berry.  You can also find landscaping and gardening tips, recipes and other interesting information.

Local Harvest

We are now listed with LocalHarvest! Check out our info, click here.

A Quote from Aldo Leopold

“The outstanding scientific discovery of the twentieth century is not television, or radio, but rather the complexity of the land organism. Only those who know the most about it can appreciate how little we know about it. The last word in ignorance is the man who says of an animal or plant: “What good is it?” If the land mechanism as a whole is good, then every part is good, whether we understand it or not. If the biota, in the course of aeons, has built something we like but do not understand, then who but a fool would discard seemingly useless parts? To keep every cog and wheel is the first precaution of intelligent tinkering.”

Leopold, Aldo: Round River, Oxford University Press, New York, 1993, pp. 145-146.

Bread and Roses

There is a new food co-op in Tallahassee on Railroad Square.  Check them out at breadandrosesfoodcoop.com

Brrrr

We’re spending more time indoors out of this weather. It’s a good time for study and research.  Bob bought me five new gardening books and now that we have DSL it’s like living at the library.  If you’re looking for an excuse to stay indoors check out Wendell Berry on YouTube.   Butts Heads with USDA is only 2:54 minutes.  Discusses Life is great at 27:06.  Floridata is a very good site for all kinds of information about plants.  Happy hunting.

A New Beginning

A new year, new decade, new (and first) website.  We’re proud of our produce pictures, courtesy of Tim Burnham, webmaster. We don’t have pics yet for all the produce that’s currently available, like kale and green garlic.  Check out Food for Thought. We’ll be serving up much more than veggies.  Links are coming soon for recipes and other related topics. Thanks for visiting!
