Edible times five

Edible Iowa River Valley, Fall 2007The fifth issue of Edible Iowa River Valley is out and about, just in time for some good Fall eating. This issue features a cover story on goats, which are becoming more and more popular as a food product in Iowa.

This issue includes an article I wrote about locally-grown chestnuts, a delicacy I had never tried before this week…and there will be more on that as the weekend approaches. Stay tuned…

The magazine is not escaping notice around the state, which is exciting. Yesterday’s Des Moines Register profiled Edible Iowa River Valley and its publisher, Wendy Wasserman, in a interesting piece that I hope you’ll check out. If you need a little more incentive to sneak over there, by learning more about Wendy, you’ll also be learning more about The Mint Killer. Yes, folks, she is one and the same, and now she’s even more famous than she was going into the weekend.

The magazine is available free at approximately 150 locations throughout the region, and is also available by subscription. My chestnut article isn’t available online quite yet, but once they run out of copies, you’ll be able to find it on the Edible site.

    Any leaf blower/vacuum would get rid of the dead leaves without tearing off the live stuff, especially if used carefully in the vacuum mode. They are pretty obnoxious sounding things, but I’ve got an electric one that’s not bad at all… and it would clean out your beds in a flash. Or, you could set up those metal ‘hoops” over your beds and cover with something like Remay, which would keep out the leaves, rabbits, and cold.

    The Mint Killer, I think you just might be stuck with the name, just because I love it so!

    Don, I have considered the hoop method…haven’t actually implemented it yet, though.
