Welcome to DC. Nice to see another Minnesotan here too.I'm in the great north and we grow a garden every year and do canning and freezing. Don't have much luck with the pumpkins tho, but we keep trying. Have fun here and you will enjoy all the great folks here too.

Bienvenue, pharmer. I'm an ex-MG myself (one look at my yard and you'd know). What growing zone are you in?

Hey Phil! Welcome. Organic garnedner here. My first crop of buckwheat is only 2" tall now. I'm running late this year. 2 jobs and the culinary passion takes its toll.

Welcome! I know you will love it here. It is great, and people are helpful and personable. But let me warn you, as I have others…this is addictive!
I admire you for your organics...i would eat only organic if only it were not so much more costly as nonorganic. where i am from...organics are definately more costly than non. I am going to start looking into the local farmers market, but even the farmers market quits for the winter, and i dont have too big a freezer,,,even proper freezing is new to me.
Oh, well, i didnt mean to get into all of that!
Anyhow, welcome to DC!

Greetings, fellow Minnesoooooooootan! Glad to have you here!

Outside of cooking, and trying to start a personal chef biz, I do gardening, etc. Contemplating perhaps gorwing some herbs, but we rent and no place for garden. Indoors is an option, except having a cat that is far more curious then she ought to be keeps telling me not to grow inside.
