A Discussion about Food

4 Apr

Hi, Jared here.  Yes, the sun has blazed its way through the snow piles, the ducks are slowly re-convening in our varied wetlands, and the wood frogs are creating quite a racket as they breed in the marshes near our house.  Spring is here, but the layer of frost on our porch and the nip on our toes as we walk through the grass suggest it’s not quite time to bust out the gardening gear yet.  The reality is, as mild as this winter and spring have been, the hard freezes here in far northeast MN can last until almost June.  Patience, Patience, Patience.

In the meantime, Cait and I have been following an entertaining and fruitful discussion over at our friends’ blog, Itty Bitty Impact about local farming, pigs, and food justice.  I think it’s worth linking here, so please stop over — and be sure to read the comment thread to follow the engaging discussion regarding sustainable and equitable food and farming practices.

    Thanks, guys! Loved your comment, Jared.

    We haven’t started the garden here, either. The threat of a frost is still looming. Getting antsy…trying to be patient. 🙂
