Curb Market Crawl – Persnickety Parsnips

I popped in to one the numerous curb farm markets the other day on a mission. My dwarf long pod okra plants are disappointing – as in puny, sickly little plants – and in my head I figured farm market = farmer. I mean, I […]

Talkin’ Swede (Part 2) – Get in my Belly

Feasting on Neeps… We’ll dispense with all that background stuff from earlier and just get to the goods today. (Head back THIS WAY if you didnt read PART 1) And, while there are a lot of tasty, ingenious ways to prepare swede out there on […]

Talkin’ Swede (Part 1) Just the Facts, Ma’am

A Cabbage Turnip by any other name… Call it a Swede, a Neep, a Yellow Turnip, Rotabagge, Snadgers, Snarkies or Swedish Turnip, we’re talking the same language. It’s a Rutabaga. Swede is a member of the large Brassica family which includes Turnips, Brussels Sprouts, Cauliflower, […]

Curb Market Crawl – Dahlonega Farmers Market

I’m a bad, bad, man… Several years ago, just after I started the Curb Market Crawl, I received an email asking me to plug the Dahlonega Farmers Market. That alone presented a couple of issues: I don’t do requested gratuitous plugs for any business… for any reason.  […]

Curb Market Crawl – Butterbeans

I grew up eating Butterbeans. Not limas… not Madagascar Beans… Butter Beans. Butterbeans are what baby limas and Fort Hook Limas become when they grow up… and yes, I know they’re all the same thing… generally. Once fully matured and the pod pales and toughens, limas turn […]

Curb Market Crawl – Early Peaches

Peach Butter Bingo Yeah, I know it… I’m not right. The super early crop of peaches here in Georgia has got me in a spin. The unusually early warm temperatures has produced a bumper (and I mean B U M P E R) crop of […]
