gametime decision on cutting the spinach tomorrow. otherwise the makings for a tasty salad and some eggs. things blow up next week. i hope everyoneis starting a compost pile. everythign that will compost goes in there. put it right on the ground somewhere.paper, cardboard all food scraps including meat scraps, maybe maybe not on kittly litter. dont have a cat so never had to make that call- but a compost pile is a lot of fun and plants LOVE compost. favorite website on agriculture is permaculture australia - geoffrey lawton. i have now read the whole library about permaculture projects worldwide. permaculture disaster relief is incredible where they start grinding all the wood up and growing mushrooms......

CSA 2010

hey everyone. first csa is this afternoon. csa starts slowly and builds momentum. this year is no exception. going to be some lettuce and eggs and a few greens some foraged. i bought a book on edible wild plants and have been trying a lot of them. edible means digestible not necessarily delicious. ill bring in some of my favorites. my favorite is dandelion greens but i assume you guys would know where to get some of those. recommended. raw or steamed. had a baby goat born at the farm yesterday and barb managed to not post the photo of it on the blog. it was brown and white if anyone is curious.
