Edible Columbus – Summer 2014

We are over the moon to have been included in the Summer 2014 issue of Edible Columbus. Click here for the online edition. We’re on page 59.photo

 

Chatting with writer Nancy McKibben gave us a great opportunity to reflect on who we are in relation to this project. Dan and I have a lot more to reminisce about – from both our individual and shared memory stores. (We’ll be sure to share some of that with you soon.)  And hanging out with photographer Catherine Murray during one of our CSA workshare days was a pleasure. We were excited to see what she saw through her lens.

When the magazine came out I read our article first, of course. It was thrilling to see our efforts recognized. Even more meaningful, however, was reading through the rest of the magazine and seeing who else was included. It gives our work context. So proud to be a part of the local foods movement here in Central Ohio and to share ink with the likes of Moo, Cluck, Four Strings Brewery (Dan’s former bandmate’s latest gig), Clintonville Community Market and Flying Horse Farms’ learning gardens.

Finally, thanks to Sarah Lagrotteria for letting Edible in on our little venture.

Who Could Ask for Anything More?

Well, this day turned out to be pretty freakin’ amazing.

When we woke up at 7am, it was all of 36 or 39 degrees out, depending on which app we were consulting. It was cold and wet and not feeling like it was gonna be a good day for much of anything.

By 9am when our CSA members rolled in, it was 50°. The sun was making a grand entrance. Catherine Murray of PhotoKitchen, a photographer freelancing for Edible Columbus, followed and we before we knew it we were working our tails off, sharing stories with Catherine, and feeling beautiful.

Once again, I’m too tired to do more than share glimpses with you via photo annotations.

Wish you were here.
