When I moved to Ohio, someone shared the saying with me, "If you don't like the weather, just wait a minute." Last Saturday, we enjoyed spring-like temperatures near 70. And, this

weekend...winter returns!

A dreary Ohio Saturday is the perfect excuse to come inside with us! This Saturday, we celebrate the return of some customer favorites - Simple Times Mixers, Patisserie Lallier, The Blueberry Patch and Proctor Center Farm; we'll be crafting Cynthia's Flowers that will be donated to patients at the Ja...

Say, "Yes!" to Cress!

January is a great time to experiment with the many greens available from our farmers. One green find is cress (or land cress), a plant with small leaves and a peppery, spicy bold flavor. Cress can be cooked or eaten raw in salads. Although similar to watercress, it is a different plant. Cress is also loaded with Vitamins A and C. You can find cress at Jorgensen Farms, and they'll be happy to give you a free taste!

The following producers expect to h...

Tokyo Bekana is one of a handful of veggies selected to be grown on the International Space Station as part of research into astronauts growing their own food in space. Why? It grows well in...

Special Mushroom Edition!

Although mushrooms are not veggies, they share many properties with veggies including versatility and nutritional value. That makes them honorary vegetables! Button mushrooms are what most of us familiar with, but there are at least 14 varieties of commonly used edible mushrooms. Mushrooms can be sauteed, grilled, used for soups or try adding them to your pot pies. Mushrooms have loads of antioxidants, B vitamins and fiber.

Be a Trendsetter - Try Senposai!

Give it a try, and it just may become your favorite green! You can find senposai at Franklinton Gardens. And, if you have a yen for other Asian greens, check out Jorgensen and Tilley .
