Simple Braised Greens

This super simple, lovely version of Braised Greens is from Elena’s Pantry.  Another great one, if you want to use a bit of bacon or ham is Michael Symon’s Braised Greens with Smokey Bacon or a version especially nice with Mustard Greens.  These all work well with any greens and a mix of them. 1 tablespoon olive […]

Celebrating Spring Greens!

I do love all of our seasonal vegetables and the roots do hold a special place in my heart for their longlasting, practical nature, loyally keeping us fed through the (usually) long Vermont winters.  That said, I always look forward to this moment that comes every year between late March and early April when the […]

Seasons and Slow Food: It’s a Blur!

Summery winds and harvest of 55 pounds of beans and 48 pounds of cucumbers make it even more unbelievable that it is October! While we sweat, mess around with irrigating amidst this dry spell and worry about bitty winter greens bolting, John, Laura’s Dad, and the geese head south. They are wise knowing this lovely […]

Greens on the Green and Milk on the Screen

It is easy to take things for granted. This week as Mari’s Dad turned 95, our farm was privileged to be part of a positive WCAX series on the new face of farming in Vermont.

These shades of green are themselves a feast. When you visit the farm this week (in person if you are lucky […]
