Announcing the Green Blog Project

I read about this event on Mahanandi, and it sounded so good, I wanted to promote it here, too.

L.G. of Mango and Ginger is hosting this long-term food blog event, The Green Blog Project that is open to everyone. What are the rules?

All she wants you to do is grow something edible in your garden, on your patio, in a pot on your windowsill or in a greenhouse, then make a recipe featuring it, and blog about it, sometime between now and September. She will have a round-up in September, and then the whole cycle will start again, for those who grow food or herbs in the wintertime. The second round will cover from October to March, and she will post the round-up in March.

You cannot get much more local than food you have grown yourself! So there you are! I know that quite a few of our fellow food bloggers, and readers, are growing gardens, so let’s all jump in and share our garden stories and recipes with L.G.

I bet you can guess from the photograph above what my recipe will feature: fresh tomatoes. Yes, my three biggest tomato plants are loaded with blossoms, and soon will be sporting tiny hard, green fruit. In the next couple of months, they will ripen into little grape-sized globes of scarlet sweetness!

I can’t wait to taste them, and I can’t wait to see what everyone else posts about!

Great idea, L.G.! I’ll be there, with tomatoes and herbs a-plenty!

  1. What a great idea. I’ll post about it this week for Weekend Herb Blogging too. There are more and more garden bloggers participating in that so they should love this.

  2. That’s great, Kalyn–L.G. is a pretty new blogger, so she was worried about how to get the word out. That is part of why I wanted to promote it. With you, and Indira and I talking about it, I hope L.G. gets lots and lots of entries from folks near and far!

    It is such a great idea, too!

  5. I am glad you could join in this project, Barbara. Very simple concept with a universal appeal, I very much liked LG’s idea.

    Thanks and looking forward to reading your ‘planter to plate’ recipes.

  6. L.G.–Thank you for coming up with the idea! And don’t worry about misspelling my name. Just think of it as “barbarian:” the name and that word came from the same root word in Greek, after all, “barbaros.”

    It means, “stranger,” although, in English, “barbarian” has taken on a negative connotation of an uncivilized, uncouth person, too.

    I rather like that connotation, myself, because I am a fan of Robert E. Howard’s “Conan the Barbarian,” stories, and have been since I was a kid, so I am not worried about the root of my name. It is all amusing to me.

    Indira–I think the project is a great idea, and will have broad appeal. I only wish we could have started our back yard’s terracing this year so we could have grown lots of goodies! But, five tomato plants and several big tubs and pots of herbs should be quite sufficient to produce something really good!
