Episode Summary

We spent the weekend at the Get Tough or Die Farm. AKA: Tanja’s mother’s house. When neighborhood cats and children aren’t disappearing in the “Tomato Triangle,” they’re dodging the assault of the trained attack rabbits, and let’s not even mention the sunflowers. It was a most relaxing weekend, filled with fantastical danger, intrigue, permaculture, Melissa’s artwork, and the most gorgeous home-grown produce we’ve enjoyed in recent memory. We started each morning with a trip to the garden where we picked fresh vegetables and fruit for breakfast, which we then ate on the garden patio. Saturday’s breakfast conversation turned to the luxury of garden grown-produce, and just how striking the taste difference between that and even [merely] local organic foods. There really is something powerful in produce less than 24hrs off the vine. Alas, not everyone can be so lucky though, if you don’t have a garden or access to one, consider joining a CSA. Or better, make friends with someone who does have a garden.Read: ‘Will videograph for food”Melissa and Patrick were kind enough to share some of their resources with us:Seeds of Change is great source for certified organic seeds, as well as information on backyard gardening.For the strawberry lover, check out Strawberries and MoreThe Gardeners Network provides a nice overview of organic alternatives to conventional garden treatments. Big Thanks to Melissa, Patrick, Leo, the Princess and Mr. Poopers, for their hospitality and tomatoes!moreless
