A couple weeks ago I came across a quirky little video about garlic scapes, something I had seen quite a bit but knew nothing about. By the time the video (which also captivated my 18 year-old daughter) was over, I knew all I needed to know and picked up some scapes on my trip to the local farmer's market. Man, were they good. I knew they would be though, because I had that great video to teach me. Where did I find this little gem? Gardenfork.tv.
So, what is Gardenfork.tv? Well, it's Eric, this guy who describes himself thusly, "I have this eclectic background and know enough to be dangerous about many things. And I have this compelling drive to share with everyone the stuff that swirls through my head, whether the world wants it or not."
He made these great little down-home videos and pitched them to the big guys. They all turned him down (and I know they'll be sorry some day!) so he did his own thing and developed Gardenfork.tv. His videos are not the highly polished type with a host carrying a plastered-on smile and never getting any dirt under his nails. Nope, these are the real deal. Fun, oftentimes funny, informative and made in such a way that you want to run out and get started on a new project or plant a new veggie as soon as the end credits roll.
Wait! It doesn't end there, he's also got The Green House; If it's green, it's there. Forums, groups, videos, blog posts, you name it.
Now, here's one of those videos I'm so fond of. This one is How to Make Rhubarb Sauce (I know the width is "off", but it's still viewable - sorry!):
Now, I know you want to rush off and get you some rhubarb, but hold off long enough to go check out Gardenfork.tv, won't you?
