The dirt on what's new in the 'food, field to fork' family and what's in our dirt this season
11:22 pm edt
We've notice there have been several other sites and organization who have 'jumped on the wagon' supporting sustainable
living. Hats off to the following (in no specific order):
University of North Dakota https://www.ag.ndsu.edu/fieldtofork on topics on how to 'Safely Growing, Processing and Selling Specialty Crops in North Dakota' and cool other stuff---check
Facebook 'Food, Field to Fork' https://www.facebook.com/Food-Field-to-Fork-151860194939092/ that features the dandy 26 family recipes in our book --- cook 'em up.
Field to Fork - Why Local Food Matters
https://youtu.be/xS1SKiypHME It's a cool video for ALL AGES on YouTube. The site indicates: 'these four animations were made by Worth Valley Yfc
with the help of ITV fixers as part of our Field to Fork project. The project aims to educate primary-school-aged children
in why local food matters supported by South Pennines Leader and Keighley Area Committee.'
Field to Fork Festival [that
we missed last month in England -- but there is always next year] https://www.fieldtoforkfestival.com/location We'd love to bring our book and check out how the British do sustainable.

Frame your mind right and land on the top of the old Food Guide Pyramid. All foods can fit in a healthy diet. Having a "jones"
for Chinese food and knowing it's usually loaded with sodium I set my sights on finding a good Chinese eatery at my destination,
Lincoln, NE. Looking for preferably a Chinese spot that cooked mostly Mandarin I found my urge satisfied. The IMPERIAL PALACE
at 701 North 27th, Lincoln, NE fit perfectly into my need to get that Bay Area Chinese food fix. Thanks to recs from
a clerk at a locate store....then a second from the buffed out bank teller -- i was on my way. Remember, 27th Street means
Asia food when in Lincoln, NE. Ordered cashew chicken and it was served in a timely fashion and tasted very good. Next time
I will order seafood and will let you know my findings. At a final price of $6.50 includining tax, no one could complain...with
very good eggdrop soup and hot Chinese tea to start with the traditional white rice and cashew chicken to follow....who could
complain? I'm not. Yum. Portion so big that I had a repeat for my evening meal. On my way out the owner gave me a Chinese
calendar as a Happy New Year gift. Wally would have said, "Gee thanks" and so did I. The next time you are
in the capital city of Nebraska....Lincoln. Don't just think football, think Chinese food. Think Imperial Palace. ( NE, Nebraska,
MSG, Chinese, 27th Street and Vine, cheap, great food, chicken, 402-747-2688)

Spring Gardening Galore -- HAPPY HOE DOWN
11:21 pm est
It's Saturday night and I am excited. Why? Spring is on its way and tomorrow is set aside to plan the Spring garden -- commit
my thoughts to paper. I love it. Always remember the first rule of gardening -- plant the right plant in the right place.
Probably leaf lettuce, radishes, arugula (so easy to grow), beets and peas will be first in the ground this year. These are
all easily grown from seed.
Tell me about your "dirty" garden plans. Read more about how gardening in FOOD, Field to Fork.
