Check your garden temperature before sowing (even after it finally gets warm!)

Check your garden temperature before sowing (even after it finally gets warm!)

Even though winter is hanging around this week like a lazy brother-in-law who just won’t get off the couch, those of us who garden turn our thoughts to planting seeds.

Hearty Chorizo, Kale and Potato Soup

A simmering pot of Portuguese Soup.

It’s February. There’s nothing I can really say that’s redeeming about local eating in February in Pennsylvania except that we’re one month closer the return of good local veggies than we were in January.
