Do you realize how the bi-annual “farm bill” affects our food supplies?  Do you realize how the farm bill get’s tied into other political machinations in Washington DC.  Beetnik Jeannie Boutelle points you here to get some ideas.

Mayhem in the cheese world?  An interesting read (and not what you’ll think).

One of the last, fresh vegetable harvested, is the leek.  It’s not just for stock.

Of course the Desk takes suggestions, tips and contributions.
