As promised for your spring and summer reading pleasure, SFB is pleased to present the first installment of SFB's Gardening Blog Series Gardening with Chris as part of our "Boston Grown" theme this year! Join Chris on his personal quest to start a backyard garden for the first time and successfully growing delicious edibles throughout the warm seasons. In his starting entry, Gardening with Chris Part One: Plotting & Seeding, Chris shares his personal account as an amateur gardener on how to create his own garden plot and start seeds indoors. In each entry, Chris will also share great tips on how to turn these tasty garden treats into delectable gourmet eats, including long-lasting preserves that can brighten up a dish and give it that special kick! Whether you're a fellow gardening novice or a long-time expert, we welcome you to share any thoughts, tips, and gardening tricks with Chris and other Slow Food community members alike through this online forum. Happy gardening!
As gardening season kicks off under Slow Food Boston’s theme Boston Grown this year, we’re happy to introduce the Slow Food Boston Gardening Series, a blog series about gardening from one of our very own members, Chris Kieffer, who offers us a first-hand account on gardening as a novice and learning about the joys (and “growing” pains) of starting a vegetable garden for the first time. While documenting his progress, Chris will also share personal insights and lessons learned, valuable tips on how to grow seasonal greens, and offer delicious recipes for your eating pleasure. From seedling to supper, we’ll learn about gardening do’s and don’ts, discover the rewards of growing your own greens organically with a little backyard care, and get a deeper understanding of what it takes to turn a tiny seed into a dinner delight.
Even if you’re not a farmer, a local producer, or a home cook, anyone who shares the Slow Food values of eating “good, clean, and fair” can grow your own food with zero miles from source to plate – these are some of the things we want to highlight this year. Visit our Blog next week to check out the first installment!
