Today I planted one of my easiest/hardest gardens, the Heirloom Dry Bean Garden. It's one of the easiest because once you get them planted, you don't have to do a darn thing to them until you harvest them.
My favorite week of the year is the week between Christmas and New Year's. Because that's the week that my rural mailbox becomes inundated with bunches of garden and seed catalogs for the spring planting season.
No matter how long you leave that stew on the stovetop, it just never gets to that falling apart, melt-in-your-mouth stage? What's the secret to fork-tender braising? It's actually easier than you would think.
