Out standing in her field

That's where you'll be likely to find me this summer.  Unfortunately, that means that I need to step away from the blog for a while. Here are a couple of other places to look for good gardening conversations:

  • Kitchen Gardeners International.  Blogs, resources, forums for backyard gardeners. Time disappears down the rabbit hole whenever I visit this site.
  • GardenWeb. This a forum base site, with forums in more categories than you could imagine. I have a slightly guilty conscience about using the forums to get very quick answers to specific questions, without sticking around to answer other people's questions.
  • The Salt – NPR's food blog. This is a well-researched blog (duh, it's NPR) on nutrition, agriculture, politics. It gives a larger context to the microcosm of small scale gardening. Very good, up-to-date information.

And just for fun, here's a recent take on the versatility of kale, according to Scott Jacobson,

a bitter, cabbage-like vegetable often seen being swallowed by Gwyneth Paltrow—is now the only food worth the trouble of digesting.

Feeling a little green around the edges?

Bye for now.

    Got my corn planted today in Potsdam. The soil temp was way up above 70 in the high, sandy garden, and fifty feet away, in the low, wet garden, more like 40.
