Strawberry Pick-Your-Own Season: What To Do With Your Haul

Strawberry "Pick-Your-Own" season is in full swing here on the east coast. C and I headed out the last weekend of May to make sure to be the first ones at the farm to pick. We failed miserably. Arriving 5 minutes before 7 a.m., we were about the 20th there! The fields were full of anxious pickers … [Read more...]

Winter CSA Veggies And What To Do With Them {Locavore Living}

Last year, I wrote a post on "Locavore Living" every Friday. I stopped doing it toward the end of the year because I wasn't really sure about how it was received. Recently when I asked you all to fill out a survey on your likes and dislikes and ideas for The Vintage Mom, the consensus was to bring … [Read more...]

Greening Up a Conference

Today, I am at CMRecharge. It is an adventure that I took on about 10 months ago with 2 others. I haven't talked about it much in this space, but it has taken up A LOT of time. :-) Let's just say that my partners in this (Ben, my husband, and Bonnie, his co-worker and our friend) and I have … [Read more...]

30 Pounds of Apples and Here is What Happened {Locavore Living}

My apple picking obsession didn't start in early childhood for me. Nope, it started in college at The University of New Hampshire. At DeMerritt Hill Farm. Each and every fall, I would head to the farm to pick apples, sometimes with my roommate, sometimes by myself. These apples would be eaten for … [Read more...]

A Trip to Union Square Greenmarket With Eckerton Hill Farm

I have been working with Eckerton Hill Farm on their social media for a good while, but just last week I had the opportunity to help them out in a new capacity as a market hand. I LOVED IT! Watch out Ben, this may be a new career move. :-) My eyes are probably more open than most to the workload of … [Read more...]

I Am In Love With Tomatoes…Heirlooms To Be Exact {Locavore Living}

So remember how I said before that I "taught" myself to like tomatoes last year? Well, I think I went a little overboard because now I am in love. I am in love with particularly colorful ones. Don't get me wrong, red is beautiful and all, but let's be real, how can you not love a quart full of … [Read more...]

A Bounty of Produce {Locavore Living}

It is weeks like these that I wish there were 30 hours in each day. I spent most of Tuesday afternoon cleaning out my fridge and freezer to get ready for some more fresh and frozen produce. Tuesday I was met by a gigantic box + 2 bags full of produce from our Sunrise CSA share. Amazing. I split this … [Read more...]

Summer Is In Full Swing and Our CSA Shares Are Showing It!

This is what summer looks like when one of your CSA shares is with an heirloom tomato farmer. A barn filled with boxes full of tomatoes ready to pack up for the market. It is like major eye candy walking into that barn and seeing all of the different varieties that the farm has to offer. Ones that … [Read more...]

When You’re On Vacation…Find a Farmer’s Market!

We have spent the last week in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. The mother of a close friend has a home here and she so nicely rented it to us. It has been a blast staying in a home where we recognize all of the pictures on the wall and one where we are greeted with Peppermint Patties in the candy dishes … [Read more...]
