Tea and Food is Aaron's blog - he did the canning workshop at the Urban Country Fair. He's funny and eloquent at the same time. An adventurous foodie, for sure.

Is anyone else going to the NOFA/Mass conference this weekend? There are some great workshops on organic gardening planning, community farms, animals and bees, nutrient dense crops, winter crops, pest control...SO MUCH good stuff for growers and dreamers alike. I'll be there with my friend Brendon and I'd love to meet you.

future_reference, I'm about to start outdoor gardening for the first time & need to buy myself a whole variety of seeds -- want to coordinate? I haven't got anything yet, but I'd be happy to share whatever I buy, especially if you've got heirloom seeds to trade!!
