It’s not just spring flowers that are unfurling around here. I am proud to say that there are now two bloggers in our family.
My sister “Turf Toter” has finally ventured into the deep, and wonderful waters of blogging. Her blog is called Okanagan Asparagus Farm, and it will feature their farm, and the produce they grow in the sunny Okanagan, BC. And I am sure there will be a few adventures thrown in for good measure.
Starting a blog isn’t easy, and beginning one just when your spring season ramps up to “crazy” status, makes it even more of a challenge. I think that they are up to it.
They have farming in their blood, dirt between their toes, and dust all over their clothes. But asparagus waits for no
person farmer, and it must be planted.
Using a antique asparagus planter, and a reliable tractor that purrs like a cat, everyone takes a turn out in the fields.
If you have ever wondered where your food comes from drop by her blog and get a first hand glimpse of what it takes to get those tasty spears of asparagus from field to the market.
Did I mention that they also grow amazing strawberries, corn, and some of the best watermelon I have ever tasted in my life? They do, and I am sure that some of that produce will be showing up on her blog soon.
I can hardly wait to bite into a Okanagan grown cantaloupe, and take a ice cold slice of watermelon. Crunching on that, along with the pickled asparagus my Mom cans, makes my summer complete.
And who knows, maybe if you ask her, she can post the recipe on her blog.
So drop by and let her know that I sent you.
