Spring Comes to Tom's Farm

Spring Comes to Tom's Farm

If you love Sunday Dinners, you'll get a kick out of this: starting today our very own Tom Hirschfeld will be sharing occasional snapshots here on Feed52 of life on his farm in Indiana. Tom, take it away:

Now that's an amazing family tradition -- and what an incredible photograph. What are your best memories of spring?

Here's a paean to our favorite winter pick-me-up, as photographed by our very own citrus-addicted Kristy Mucci.

Down & Dirty: Celery

This week, at the request of mrslarkin, it's all about celery! (Have you contributed to our contest yet?)
