Living Off the Land

Are any of you lucky enough to have Diary of a Foodie play on your local PBS station? We discovered this show about a year ago and eagerly await its broadcast each Saturday evening. Gourmet’s Diary of a Foodie is for the true food lovers. The cinematography is beautiful and the narration speaks to you as if you really are an intelligent human being, rather than a kindergartner. Here’s what they say about their show, “Looking at the world food-first, Gourmet’s Diary of a Foodie is a sophisticated, high-end public television series that introduces viewers to a feast of cutting-edge food trends, exotic ingredients, and in-the-know food players on an international level.” Each episode makes me swoon. Recently they’ve made their shows viewable on their website and you can also download them and listen to them on your iTunes. I want to share this one with you:

Living off the Land

Among the stories in it, the main story is about Elliot Coleman and his wife Barbara Damrosh who farm at Four Season Farm in Harborside, Maine. He’s figured out how to use greenhouses to extend his growing seasons a little bit earlier and later each year until finally he was able to eliminate winter all together in his farming. His garden is gorgeous and their kitchen is to die for. When we do get our dream farmhouse, you will all be invited for homegrown BLT’s in our kitchen just like in Barbara.
