ALL DONE (week 30)

“All done” is one of Bull Frog’s favorite and most frequent statements.  I can’t believe it but we are ‘all done’ with our 2012 growing season.  We are super greatful to all our members and fans for participating, or just watching from a distance, as we grew this year.  It’s been a wild ride for … Continue reading »

Legalize It Man

I was headed home the other day, driving down the road, behind a dirty semi truck.  Someone had written in the dirt, “wegalize leed”- but I’m not talking about that.  I’m talking about pork.

OliveYou: Recipes from the Farmer’s Sister

Baby! Baby! Baby! So while the Farmer’s Wife listed the baby vegetables coming to CSA members she seemed slightly apologetic. “Why on Earth?!”, I thought. Baby vegetables are the BEST. Some baby vegetables are truly different plants than their grownup counterparts, e.g. baby corn. But most baby veggies are usually just the wee ones. They … Continue reading »

Week 29

The Farmer looked at me and said, “Oh No! Thanksgiving is THIS week. I thought it was next week. I was saving the collards.” So, at 4:45am on Saturday morning he was harvesting collard greens for the shares to be delivered a few  hours later. The food was awesome this week and it wasn’t until … Continue reading »

Stop laughing-I’m serious!  Sometimes you just gotta dive in head first.  So after I finish reading this wonderful book I will be looking for a evenly paired set of Red Devons’, Jerseys’, or maybe even Dexters’ if that’s what you’re sellin. … Continue reading »

I’m still not saying I can grow anything…..

…but maybe, just maybe, I can get something to grow. I was very discouraged, down right depressed about all the plant death that took place this last summer and into the fall.  I tried to sprout all sorts of veggies for transplant and they all ended up dead.  “Not failures,” my friend says, “learning curves”.  … Continue reading »
