Blooming Glen Farm Growing Ginger

Sunday, September 14, 2014


There aren’t many fresh vegetables available this season or any other that wouldn’t be improved with the addition of some ginger.  It’s almost unfair to think of it as a non local element to a dish, because it’s such a staple and how could we possibly grow it here?  Apparently we can.  The ginger on the right is what we all know from the supermarket, but the one on the left is freshly picked from Blooming Glen Farm.  I will cook with it, and soon, but right now I just keep staring at it, amazed that it grew only an hour away.

If only our little lemon tree would give us another crop.
