And below are few of the herbs we are growing: mint and rosemary. I think that means we're having a mojito and rosemary bread summer.
A few weeks ago, Gender Fatigue had another amazing guest. Gail Taylor, a farmer at a community supported agricultural farm in Upper Marlboro, Maryland called Clagett, came into the studio to talk about spring planting. For those who don't know, a CSA is a membership supported farm. So basically folks can buy a share and they are guaranteed a portion of that year's harvest every week for a certain amount of months.
If you're a novice, what do you need to start growing:

2. good soil--we've been composting for a couple of years so we have some really good soil but just go to a garden store or any place with soil to sell. Or you can contact us and we will share with you...maybe
4. A tool for digging
