Pick a little, talk a little, pick a little, talk a little, cheep cheep cheep...

Welcome to the Localharvest Blog

Pick a little, talk a little, pick a little, talk a little, cheep cheep cheep, talk a lot, pick a little more...

Welcome to the new LH blog! We've been wanting to be more dedicated bloggers for a while now, but quite honestly have just been too darned busy to get around to it. Finally, finally, it made it to the top of the list.

We've moved the older, some of it more casual, LocalHarvest blog to a new home. From now on, you can read about Amber and Guillermo's travels, recipes, and thoughts on food and farms at their Slow Life with Real Food blog.

Guillermo Payet has been working late into the night to bring a fabulous new blog feature to LocalHarvest. Now all LocalHarvest members can have their own blogs! The word is spreading -- check out the Blog Directory on the right and you'll see which farms have already started clacking away. And check back often, as more farms are creating blogs every day. We, too, will be blogging here; in the new LH Blog we'll be commenting on news from the food world, relaying stories from farmers we talk with, and telling a few tales of our own urban farming adventures. We look forward to your comments!

Hello and Help!
I wrote a comment my first time here and had a response that my message would not be posted as it was considered spam" I don't know what I said that was wrong! ? I need some instruction, obviously.
Thanks, Karen

It is my impression that blogs are for content, not marketing. For example, the following blog is clearly just a sales pitch, rather than sharing information, photos, paranoid fantasies, news of the world, etc.

The marketing people have plenty of other opportunities and I suspect your blog venture will go defunct once the marketers overload it. I suggest you restrict the blogs to "No sales pitches."

Agreed... We added this to the entry creation page:

"The LH blogs exist as an opportunity for farmers and other LH members to
tell stories and tall tales, to muse and reflect, rant and rave, etc.
They're not for advertising, pushing your products, or otherwise "being
spammy." Please use them as intended, or we'll have to start policing,
and we'd rather put our energies elsewhere. Gracias."

Nice blog etc. I had bookmarked you a while ago, but not visited in ages. I started as a gardener, gravitated to vegetable gardening, and from there the natural next step is real food. You folks are a great resource.

Local Harvest is a wonderful source of information and inspiration. I wrote a blog post on a boomer site about importance of local farmers, and of course linked to your Local Harvest website. Thanks for being there, here is the link:
