After an update on the weather and the garden we dive into a discussion on PH and Jason’s new interest in micro-nutrients in soil and ‘listening’ to the plants. This Spring the farmhouse has been all a flutter with baby birds and nests in the trees & windowsills. Jason shares a recipe for fried elderflowers using a super simple beer batter. Local elections are all the buzz around the region and we share our favorite marketing strategies. A few festivals from Cantine Aperte (Open wineries throughout Italy) to SlowFood’s return to Cagli for Distinti Salumi.
