Fearless Foodie:

Confessions of a Seed Catalog Junkie

My latest food column is all about my obsession and salvation this time of year: seed shopping at obsessive levels. Oh, yeah, and also about Alexander Solzhenitsyn, cats high on 'nip, breakfast radishes, and doomsday survivalists, and how they come into a seed stalkers world in the most unlikely fashion:


Oh and speaking of seed swaps, CAC Beardsley Community Farm is all set to have one Feb. 23, in cohesion with its first work day of the year. Here's the scoop from their press release:

Beardsley Farm Seed Swap and Work Day

On Saturday, February 23rd from 9 AM to 2 PM, join CAC Beardsley Community Farm as we prepare for the spring growing season with a workday and a Seed Swap!


From 9 AM to 12 noon, volunteer with fellow community members as we get ready for the spring! Come for the full time of the workday, or drop in for an hour or two to lend a hand. We will have a farm tour for those who are not familiar with Beardsley Farm. If you have never visited, this is a chance to learn more about what we do for the Knoxville community.

After the workday, join us for a Seed Swap from 12 noon to 2 PM.  One gardener's extras are another gardener's treasures. Come trade seeds with your fellow Knoxville garden lovers at Beardsley Community Farm. Share rare heirloom seeds and talk up your favorite gardening tricks at this community event.

Attendance is FREE and you do not need to bring seeds to the swap. We will also have our 2013 Garden Calendar available for a discounted rate of $10-perfect for helping you plan your garden with your new seeds!

We hope to see you for a full day of garden fun and learning.
