Week 1 Update + An Invitation to Dig In!

Well, I’ve lived through 7 whole days on this project! Last night I took advantage of the great weather to go out on my deck and record an update video. I tried to answer most of the frequently asked questions I’ve been getting. If I left anything off, please let me know and I’ll try to address them during the Week 2 update.

Dig In! at Blandford This Sunday
I also want to let everyone know that I’ll be stopping by the Dig In! event at Blandford Nature Center this Sunday. This is going to be a really fun event. From their website:

You’ll see real horse-drawn plows working the land, and have a chance to participate in projects to support our first youth and community-based growing season in 20 years. In addition to meeting our youth participants, you can learn all about our upcoming summer program on the farm, and ways you can get involved. Activities include planting seeds, spring ecology tours, lessons for kids connected to nature and food, hiking, picnic areas, and a Homestead Day in our historic buildings.

If you’d like to meet me in person, I’ll be volunteering from approximately 1-4:30pm.

Dandelions – The Dirty Truth

I had grand plans to make a video of me foraging for dandelions this weekend. Unfortunately, I only had time to go out on Saturday and the rain foiled my plans. I picked a good amount anyway and decided that I would share the muddy dandelion cleaning process with all of you.

I also had a chance to look up the nutritional information on dandelions. Did you know 1 cup of raw greens has 112% of the RDA of Vitamin A? Read more about the incredible, edible weed at
