On this cool February, my mind is skipping to planting time, a month or two away. Patience is a main tool in the gardener's box.
I will plant arugula, lettuces, onions, peas, favas, broccolini, cime di rape.
Most of these varieties are not found in supermarkets or farmers' markets. When I serve the arugula salad with dried cranberries and hazelnuts I will know where each of these products have been before reaching my plate.
Can you plant some mouth watering specialties in your yard or in a community garden?
If you don't have a community garden, check with your city. There ought to be some plot of land that could be transformed and become a food source for the citizens.
