When I don't eat local grown on purpose.

I've spent the last 2 Saturdays going around to my favorite farmer's markets to amass enough tomatillos to put up some salsa verde. The other key ingredient, though, is decidedly not local to Ohio.

It's the time of year when the smell of roasting chiles permeates the air when…

Murphy's Law of Canning

I firmly believe there's a Murphy's Law of Canning. You know Murphy's Law, right? Anything that can go wrong will go wrong? I believe that is statistically true over time.

Cherries & Strawberries, Mustard Greens & Garlic Scapes, and School's Out . . . for Summer!

My CSA Farmer's Farm Journal - Veggies are on their way!

Just hearing about the veggies going into the ground makes my mouth water! Thought I'd share his first email of the season. It's a nice view into the New England farmer's day.

Hello all, and Happy Spring!

I’m very, very busy out here as the planting in the greenhouse is

Bike-powered CSA delivery

Tomorrow is the last pickup *sob* for my winter CSA from Red Fire Farm in Granby, MA and I've been meaning to share some photos and information about a very cool enterprise here in Boston called Metro Pedal Power.
