The Super Bowl = Food

The Giants aren’t in this year so the focus should be more than ever on the food that you’ll be eating while pretending to watch. Let us prescribe. Carbs are key when drinking so we have you covered. Australian style meat pies or sandwiches would fit the bill nicely.

Or maybe you want to create your own sandwich at home? Then come by for a baguette or a sourdough loaf or rolls. We accept special orders for bread so call it in today or tomorrow and it will be fresh baked for you on Sunday.

The Fedco Seed Catalogue is here!!

O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay! The Fedco Seed Catalogue is here!!  Admittedly we received it back at the tail end of December but I am just now casting my eyes on what I think of as the catalogue of fresh hope and new beginnings.

I have a confession to make –  last year’s growing season for Carolyn and me was a dud.  We missed the window for starting all our seeds so, like dominoes falling, the rest of the season simply fell apart and never materialized. But that was last year…..

This year I am very excited to take another crack at the role of amateur gardener.   One project I want to undertake to make the seedling stage more productive / fun is to build a hoop house!   I’ll try to document the construction and implementation of this endeavor for your entertainment and our mutual education.   I will be looking for guidance from my old friend Ray Williams of Back Beyond Farm.  He is my go-to guy for my endless questions on the dark art of growing vegetables competently.

So I will close by wishing all of my fellow growers, both professional and dabblers,  an upcoming bountiful and fulfilling growing season!!
