So, I've just been blogging away about whatever I happen to stumble across, without getting much feedback from the readers. It strikes me that perhaps the things I write about are not necessarily the things you might be itching to know. So then, how bout if you all drop a comment back about what sorts of things you might be interested in, from a historic foodways perspective. Have you been wondering what bonny clabber is? Or are you more interested in heirloom fruits and veggies? Or is it the ubiquitous Dutch oven that holds your fascination? Have you tried an old recipe and failed? If you were to drop a comment about it, then I'd know what sorts of topics I should focus on, instead of just spewing random blather.
In other news, the Trophy tomato seeds we planted did incredibly well and we shall transplant this evening to larger pots. The Sudduth's Brandywine have straggled along, looking like weaklings. The Fish Peppers are also doing very well. We planted radishes, lettuce, peas and onions last weekend, and then it snowed, so things are coming along nicely in the garden. I hope your gardens are doing well also. Hope to hear from you all again soon!
