No, no, we’re not placing bets on horses or at a poker table in Vegas. We’re placing bets on how well I can keep up with this season’s farmshare deliveries. That’s right. The 2016 farmshare season has arrived! And… I’m already two weeks in, BUT so far nothing has made it to the compost pile. Will I survive or will I be crushed under a pile

/> Wily Winter – Why You Need This Stew Last weekend it was sunny, balmy, and beautiful out. This week? Cold, snowy, & blustery, but I can’t complain all that much because it really has been a mild winter. [Knocks on every single piece of wood in the house.] However, just because it’s been mild doesn’t mean we’re whipping out the grill and sitting on
