The title is a direct quote from my girlfriend when I sent her to the blog to retrieve my address - I still don't know my garden's address. Also, for the last couple of days I have been pretty tired, so wasting some time this morning writing this will be a nice break.

After some searching and not finding the right place to buy, I decided that it would be a good idea to look for land to lease for 2012 so that I could take my time finding the perfect permanent home for the garden. After contacting many, many local farmers and being told no time and time again, I turned to Craigslist.

I will only be in Texas for 3 more weeks! I am getting really excited to get started on my own in Louisville. I have onions, parsley and swiss chard I have been growing here in Texas that will make the trip north with me, along with a few flats of tomatoes and other items I am starting early in hopes of getting them to the market faster.

Maybe this is premature, because I don't have anything in writing yet but, I have a verbal agreement with a sheep/cattle farmer in New Albany, IN to lease a couple of acres of pasture land for the season! That means now it is time to get crackin' on finding the best farmer's markets in the area and maybe even some restaurants that want some absolutely delicious fresh local produce. Enough food related hyperbole for me for the day, I just wanted to get it on the record that I am THRILLED to have some dirt lined up to grow on for the season!

As I mentioned earlier, Marvin's Garden Produce is currently without land for the season in the Louisville, KY area, but perhaps not for long. Thanks to an ad on Craigslist desperately seeking land, I now have a few leads. All so far are a little farther out than I want to be, but I get the feeling that I will have to settle for a long commute to the markets in Louisville. While I have yet to make a decision, I will put up a new post as soon as I do.

It will be available briefly in the spring and fall (we hope), it is beautiful and delicious. Raw in salads, steamed or battered and fried with other veggies or roasted in olive oil and parmesan, most of my personal consumption of cauliflower is pretty simple but what follows are a few different ideas. Enjoy!
