These "Bitter Greens" Taste Sweet

Just discovered a new Watauga County blog devoted to organic gardening and a "liberation politics based on food," "Bitter Greens Journal," done by Tom Philpott at Maverick Farms (which itself has a dynamic website).

We've been to a dinner at Maverick Farms, a memorable occasion in every way. Now add to that the stimulating cross-polination of Tom Philpott's blog.

He's a recovering journalist (a stock market columnist for Reuters, among other writing jobs) and a sharp observer of government policy. More than that, he and the entire Maverick Farms crew represent the best in entrepreneurial vision that makes Watauga County such a stimulating place to live.

Long may they thole, and toughly!
