I know, I know, some of you see the word, “Spring” and think of a time far, far away as you watch the snowflakes fall outside your wintery windows. But, it really is coming- the daisies, April showers, bunnies hopping in the grass- you know, the season of flowers and pastels will be here sooner than you think! Here in San Diego we get to enjoy the long growing season and warmer weather a little earlier than most of the US, so we’re gearing up early for what’s ahead.
If you’re new here at Reaching Beyond Now, hello! Welcome! Garden Eats is my organic kitchen gardening blog and business. We teach people how to live well in the modern world by growing and eating organic, sustainable food. It’s a little less sciencey than what you get here and a lot more bubbly (yes, sarcasm prevails here at RBN- how else could we talk about all that sensitive hot-button stuff).
If you haven’t visited Garden Eats yet, please do! I’m co-writing two books right now- one with friend and genius UK based health chef, Magnus Mumby and the other with product developer and craft cocktail mixologist, Jeremy LeBlanc. I’ll be repping my best in all things food science, slow food philosophy and Chinese medicinal food therapy in these collections, but sharing the process and of course, recipes all along the way.
Kath, Garden Eats co-founder is prepping everyone now to get their seed catalogs ordered too! Last year so many folks wrote to us asking where to get seeds so she wanted to let everyone know much earlier this year! If you’re living in SoCal or another warm-weathered locale, stay tuned over there, she’ll be featuring an awesome article about soil culture- the thing that makes or breaks the health of your garden.
Another reason to visit Garden Eats? How about two- we just gave the site a new look to navigate recipes, lifestyle features and growing tips much easier along with our newly featured section on culinary drinks and spirits. The second reason- we’re still not done doing our giveaways for the new year!
The S T U F F. And, what’s to come in the new year here at Reaching Beyond Now? A lot more of the stuff that most people don’t like to write about- the stuff that’s difficult to talk about, the stuff that’s controversial, the stuff that is however, enlightening, empowering and oh so the stuff of life.
