4th Annual Dark Days Challenge

Up for a Challenge?

If the 100 Mile Challenge scares you, how about a modified version? Click on the image above to be taken to the blog Urban Hennery: thoughts on country living, farming, gardening and eating locally.  Dark Days is a challenge to eat locally one day a week from December 1st – April 15, 2011. You’re invited to sign up and if you’re a blogger, you can send in your pictures and write-up a recap on your blog. If blogging isn’t your thing, you’re welcome to write your experiences under the comments section of the Urban Hennery blog. It’s definitely a challenge over the winter months, but you may be surprised how much fresh and local meat, vegetables, dairy and wines are available in your area. You can almost taste the slow cooked beef stew, with hearty chunks of potatoes, parsnips, carrots, onions with a glass of local cabernet sauvignon . Check out your local granary and make your own bread for an even heartier addition to your mid-winter’s dinner. Doesn’t sound so bad, does it?
