Today we are thrilled to present the first in a series of videos of the farmers who grow our vegetables. This one features biodynamic grower Mike Benziger of Glentucky Farms in Glen Ellen, Calif., and it captures the essence of the reason we founded Dr. Cowan’s Garden.
Our primary mission, as so beautifully described by Mike, is to make it easy for people to diversify their diets with the most nutritious (and sometimes hard-to-find) plants as possible. To optimize the nutritional content of the plants, first and foremost, we need healthy soil. No one describes and fulfills this need more precisely and passionately than Mike.
And, as you will see toward the end of the video, plants, like people, perform best when they are surrounded by beauty. Please watch the video all the way to the end. If you are like me, you, too, will be inspired to somehow create more beauty in your life.
Are you foot-loose and fancy-free when it comes to cooking up a storm in the kitchen? Do you like to create your own masterpieces with tried and tested recipes? If so, you might relish this slightly healthier version of traditional Scotch eggs.
Scotch eggs were invented by Fortnum & Mason, an old-fashioned department store established in 1707 in the UK. This surprisingly simple yet delicious recipe has two main ingredients: eggs and pork sausage meat. It makes perfect picnic food, travels well, and can be eaten hot or cold.
Being in the garden is healing. Digging in the soil with bare hands and feet while soaking up the sunshine. Fresh water washing the toes via the hose. Where bees are buzzing, hummingbirds fluttering, buds a-blooming and beans are growing.
