I managed to make it through April Fool’s Day without any trickery. I think when it falls on a Sunday there’s less tricks to be had. Today we’re looking back on a busy birthday month of March and looking forward to the local produce popping up in April. Rumors of ramps, asparagus and wild mushrooms have floated around the local food world! Exciting!
March at Minnesota Locavore
This month Minnesota Locavore celebrated the end of a year of blogging. A first birthday that came and went quietly, but not without recognition. It’s been a fantastic year with many new friends and faces. There’s much more planned for Year 2!
The most popular posts in March: How to Grow Sprouts, A post from 2011 called Edible Landscapes, and the blueberry crisp recipe which seems to be a permanent fixture in our refrigerator now. I made a crisp per week for the last 5 weeks!
The most commented post: A Blog-a-versary (Thanks again for all of your kind words this month!)
New this month: In an effort to showcase some of the great multi-media content supporting the local food movement, I introduced Three Video Thursday in March. I spend a few minutes every week browsing the web for videos anyway–why not share them with all of you. If you enjoy them as much as I do, pass them along and we’ll spread the locavore love around together.
March at 20Food.net
This month I posted my garden plans for my second season as a 20Food grower. It’s smaller scale than last year and definitely built on the “less is more” model. I already have plants in the garden soaking in the April sunshine!
