From Garden to Table
For my first post, I wanted to share a nutritious and delicious recipe for broccoli salad that I made tonight for my family's dinner. This was no ordinary broccoli salad because the broccoli was grown in our backyard, from heirloom seeds, in organic soil. I want to take you on a journey from farm (or in our case, backyard) to table. My wife, Jeanette, has led the charge in our family not just to grow our own food but to grow it well. I get regular earfuls from her about the importance of soil quality, why we should grow organic as opposed to conventional, and why she starts with pure, non-genetically modified, heirloom seeds.
