Church Of The Earth - Video

Many years ago I come across a hard to find book by Robert De Ropp - Church of the Earth The ecology of a creative community - it was writings based on Robert  leaving the life of a scientist and going back to the land to grow his own food and develop an experimental community. It was more than just living on the land it was about experimenting on a deeper level with community living and working with…

Pizza Hippo Goes to Brattleboro Farmer's Market Jury Day

Today is the Brattleboro Farmer's Market Jury Day.


"What is this?" you ask. It's the day where everyone who wants to take part in the market shows up with product to be judged by a very, how do I say, tightly... knit group of folks who run the show.
Its a little nerve wracking as these things have a reputation for being political and similar to Greek Rush week. As you may or may not know, I never rushed. Draw your own…

Pizza Hippo, Organic Vermont Crowd Sourcing, and Long Distance Bike Riding for Hippopotamus

Hello, and welcome back to the Outlandish Dreams blog. I've got to say that un-outlandish dreams are okay, like dreaming for a dishwasher, but the bigger ones really get me going.…

Fire Grilled Pizza in Southern Vermont

Southern Vermont has an amazing food culture for lack of a better descriptor.  Everyone gardens, farms, raises animals, brews cider, kambucha, pickles, cures, and generally eat like kings. 

When I moved here a few years ago, I got involved with making sourdough breads.   What could possibly be better than fresh sourdough bread, piping hot from the oven, butter melting and steaming on the crusty crust right before "chomp" and "ahhhh"?

One day last summer, we had a cold night and…

Behind the Scenes of the High Mowing Organic Seeds' Vegetable Breeding Work - Interviews with the people who make it happen.

Behind the scenes of our plant breeding are the two people who direct this work, build relationships with public plant breeders, take detailed notes, and organize taste tests to ultimately bring forth these exciting new varieties. I thought that you would want to hear from them about how it all works. Jodi Lew-Smith and Heather Jerrett, have both worked at High Mowing since 2003 and… Continue

Storing the Fall Bounty

Storing the Fall Bounty



We have all worked hard in our gardens and on our farms, reaping the harvest

all season long, from spring greens and peas to main season

broccoli and green beans. We’ve been canning pickles and salsa,

freezing beans and corn, and drying herbs so that we can enjoy the

flavor of a summer meal while warming up near the woodstove after a long

day on the ski slopes (at least… Continue

Rabbit Poo!

Today I made friends with a woman who breeds rabbits for use as pets. Because I came to take her poo.

What would I want to do with several bins of rabbit poo? Because you can't run a closed loop system (self sustaining) garden without animals to help you fertilize, and rabbit manure is the greatest fertilizer made in this part of the world (next to worm castings, but I'd need a LOT of worms). Plus, it's the only manure that doesn't need to be composted first. And the roll-y pellets don't… Continue

Garden Warfare: Squirrels

As I moved my artichoke and pepper seedlings outside this morning, I was greeted by a horrible sight. My beautiful beet babies were tossed about and buried. My mizuna roots were lying bare.



Squirrels.

Bane of my existance! Oh why do you torment me so?



So, I reached for my handy dandy secret weapon. Cayenne Pepper. Yup, just plain old cayenne pepper. You can sprinkle it right on your young plants, the soil, and even mature leaves, without harming… Continue
