also, you can keep plants (like arugula) from bolting in hot weather if you harvest often. we grow arugula through july and august and do a complete harvest every week. another great reason to eat more salad!

i really dislike plastic liners for plants. the plastic holds in heat and moisture and can contribute to poor root development or rot. i recommend lining the crate with felt or burlap to prevent soil from spilling out, but allowing adequate water drainage and air flow.

i don't really think the organic label is something consumers cant trust. i work for a certified organic farm that achieved organic certification with minimal soil testing. three years later we discovered there were pcbs at shallow depths on the property. how many other organic farms are operating with industrial chemicals on site?

what is on top of the pie and why isn't that included in the recipe or instructions?

Number 9 won? Other entries looked much better. The recipe is plain, the crust isn't special, and whatever that stuff is on top looks weird. I'm also curious as to how so many people voted on it when it got very few comments and wasn't posted on the website very long. Did you guys track IP address with votes to make sure they all didn't come from someone creating usernames from the same computer? Very disappointing. Pies like Pear and Gruyere or Bean Brulee or Apple Cranberry Galette are truly original and look fantastic.
