hi cornelia, it's been slow, but i'm trying to connect with local gardeners. i'd like to swap veggies and maybe rotate crops between gardens.- let's take food one step above the (great but expensive here) farmer's markets. in ct. there is a farm to chef website run by the doag. chefs post in a "need " list, and suppliers in a "have" list. i'm too small to be a supplier. maybe i don't know any gardeners because i spend all my time in...yep! there.
Thanks so much! I am growing about 5 different herbs along my window-sill in my kitchen. But other than that I'm not growing anything else. Although I would absolutely love to! I just don't have a community of people to get in touch with and learn more about how I can do that within the city. That was one of the reasons I was in search of a website like this one! Thanks so much for reaching out to me.
C, Yeah the chickens are in the living room for now because they're tiny (less than two weeks old). Once they grow all their feathers, we'll move them to a coop in the backyard.
I had a new strategy this winter for local eating: ferment as many roots as possible, so that they were easier to eat & could make up a larger part of my diet. Radishes were the most successful. Especially Watermelon Radishes. Yum.
Thank you so much for the wonderfully warm welcome Cornelia...It's a pleasure to be amongst people I feel right at home with already :) I look forward to spending time here learning and making friends.
I fell into this website yesterday and I couldn't get out: these are my people! What a great site, and what a **very smart** project for Farm Aid to be doing. I'm really looking forward to learning from all of the great people here and sharing my knowledge as well. Yeah for Homegrown!
Hi Cornelia! I do plan on participating in the May events, along with several other OV folks. I'm sure there's someone who would love to guest blog! Let me figure out your best person and get back to you. What fun! I didn't have a chance to chime in on recent changes to HOMEGROWN but am digging how it's evolving--nice work! I also look forward to telling you about our upcoming Earth Dinners; stay tuned!
