Some people go to Lollapalooza. We go to Chickapalooza. This past Saturday we woke up early, hopped in a Zipcar, picked up some chocolate croissants + iced coffee & headed out of the bustling city to the very edge of Long Island City for the weekend-long festival at Garden of Eve Farm. This year I finally signed up for a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), so from June until November, I'll be picking up a weekly share of veggies, fruit, & eggs delivered from Garden of Eve to my local farmer's market. The festival included a tour of the farm, various seminars (Beekeeping 101, How to Maintain a Container Garden, How to Raise Chickens), and heaps of plants for sale. I came home with a tomato plant, now happily living on my windowsill, as well as an edible herb garden with cilantro, parsley, and basil.
