Hi and thanks for the welcome! I will be happy to share photo's of my birds and pigs, and anyone else that gets in the view. Happens often. Horses, Cats, Dogs, Raccoon's that have taken up residence and eat the cat food.... Will work on that this weekend. :-)

I'm in Kansas and want to have a CSA as well as sell at the Farmer's market.  Our farmer's markets are seasonal and outdoors, so I'm also interested in expanding them into something year round...perhaps a co-op.  Lots of ideas...I need to be cloned!  And thanks for the tip.  I'll look at her page.

Thank you. And indeed. Though it has been the better part of a decade so I should probably revisit. Peace!

It was our first time making them too and we impressed ourselves w how tasty they were! A simple beer batter (it should seem really runny- keeps it light), peanut oil, shredded carrots and cabbage, cilantro and our new favorite sauce we've named 'Crack Cocaine' : equal parts sourcream/mayo (we'll say a cup total for ratio), lime juice (1 or 2 limes), Sriracha sauce to taste- we like spicy so I used probably 3Tblspn.   Happy New Year!

Thanks for your comment, Caroline! My friends and I started a blog to create a dialogue around food swaps: http://www.bostonfoodswap.com/ We'd love to cross-post to Homegrown, so could you clue me into how that works? Thanks again!

In Missouri we have a wide variety of wild edibles. Acorns, Black walnut, cattail, clover, elderberry and so many varieties of grasses not to mention purselane which is high in omega 6 and grows like crazy in well watered places like my garden. Wild rose, dandelion, "Wild edibles of Missouri" Is my favorite go to book by Jan Phillips.  She gives picking season and great pictures and descriptions. Here's an example the young leaves of a raspberry or blackberry plant dried makes for a lovely tea add dried lemon or orange peel. Very nice. Also the young shoots edible once they are scraped or peeled. And then of course the berries.

I am on a Primal Diet. Which is basically what it says. No processed anything. No grains, no sugar, no alcohol. Which leaves us with veggies, fruit and very lean meat and very little 3 oz per day. Most of which are to be eaten in their raw state. I love to forage. I have an acre where we do not treat for weeds. Many of which are edible. Dandelion, Purslane, watercress, chickweed, wild lettuce. Did you know the petal of the common orange day lilly are very edible and taste of sweet lettuce. Only eat the petals.      
No exotics they can be posionous.

Also remember when your Maple releases it helicopters. They too are very tasty. Gather them up clean the wings from them. They are much like sweet peas. Boil in water and salt and pepper add some OLIVE Oil and Dine. Delicous!

If you have a Redbud the flowers make a wonderful sweet addition to your salad.  The buds are also edible and taste a little nutty.

Caroline this is different from traditional crusts but the flavor is awesome.

One bottle of beer.  A honey beer is good.

2 tbsp butter

2 Tbsp oil

2 Tbsp honey

4 cups of unbleached flour or high gluten flour.

1 1/2 Tbsp yeast.  That you store in the freezer.

I like to let it season at room temp  in an oiled covered bowl for at least six hours.

This does 2 18 inch pans of pizza.  I like to prick it with a fork.  The technical term escapes me now.  I pre bake it until its nicely brown then I remove it and brush with butter.  Then put on your sauce and ingredients of choice.  My wife just wants to eat the crust.
