This article appeared in the Food section of the NY Times yesterday? (If you don't have time to read it, it's about Frito-Lay marketing their potato chips as local!) I'd say big corporations are stretching the term "local food," wouldn't you? I guess this may be a good thing, that large corporations are noticing the local food trend..... Or maybe not..... Let's hope they don't squash all us little guys. What do you think?
This is a shot of one of my multi-colored Brandywine tomatoes from last summer's garden. I've got to get some plants in the ground soon.....
BOOK PARTY - MAY 5-6
to celebrate the publication of my new book
CRAFTING A PATTERNED HOME.
Our colorful 1751 farmhouse will be open to the public. On view will be many of the projects that are featured in Crafting A Pattern Home along with many other things I have made over the years.
This event will be a celebration of the handmade. I hope the day will inspire you to add some pattern and color to your home.
The event is FREE. Books will be available along with some other things I have made. For more information and directions, see the EVENTBRITE PAGE HERE. Although tickets are not mandatory, it will help me get a count to know what to expect. Hope to see you here in western Massachusetts in May.
