I am looking out at a cold winter landscape with barren trees, a bit of snow still here and there and a grey and white sky; not much green or growing. However, life is burgeoning in those tree trunks and underground and my imagination runs wild as I sit by the woodstove with my gardening catalogs, almanacs and moon-and sun-sign books.

Once again, the winter solstice is here, a day where the length of night and day are equal. Although it is considered the first day of winter, a time for turning inward and reflections on the past year and the year ahead--from this day forward, our days will be lengthening and brightening.

If you have a sunny southern window, you just might be able to enjoy fresh tomatoes through the winter. Tiny Tim is an heirloom variety that’s a perfect “pet tomato” for growing indoors this time of year.

Recently, my next-door farmer came over with about 20 or more cabbages and we had a cabbagepalooza--making everything from sauerkraut and kimchi to stuffed cabbage rolls. Let yourself become cabbage-inspired with story, pix and recipe ideas below.
Recently, I had the great fun and pleasure to be involved in making sorghum the old-fashioned way. Sorghum producer, Benson Hardaway from Strawberry, Arkansas brought his sorghum and we pressed it using a donkey-powered sorghum mill at the Ozark Folk Center State Park.
