I am probably not alone in this, but one of my first loves is food.
That, and knowing where it comes from. After years studying exactly that question, and spending summer after summer grinding dirt into my knees, I had the happy opportunity to share some of what I’ve learned from numerous online, print and “walking” sources. Think of this series as a ‘pay it forward’ for other enthusiastic gardeners looking for a bit more information about what it’s like to garden where the earth is under several feet of snow half the year.
