Notes of a midwestern farm
I’m considering the summer weather right now. Pondering when and with what effect it will inevitably shift, as low fifties are predicted for these coming weekend nights. Terra Brockman composes lovely writings of certain ecological imperatives, including life on her brother Henry’s farm. Their roots are of Illinois, family, and farming. In mid August, Terra wrote of a heat inextricably woven into both day and night while considering those that toil within this realm. This particular piece is a part of her weekly food and farm notes series and to read about the extreme heat, just click on August under blog archive. Terra shares various descriptions of life on this midwestern farm as well as information on the vegetables grown and of course, suggestions on how to prepare items such as daikon, salsify, and purslane.
