Edible Madison  Celebrating the abundance of local foods in Southern Wisconsin, season by season.

Did anyone happen to try out stuffing their extra squash blossoms with cheese and herbs this year? It's a great way to make use of them if you're like us and can't stand wasting any food, even flowers! Check out our website for a #recipe.

A syrup made from #edibleflowers will give new life to cocktails, lemonade, tea, or desserts.

Who knew dandelions, the bane of suburban lawns everywhere, were not only edible but could make such a delicious snack!

Aren't they gorgeous? And they're **edible** too! ๐Ÿ˜

"Recently, a short drive through Vernon County led me past three failing barns. These graying, partially collapsed heaps of pine and paint highlight a huge challenge frequently facing the next wave of beginning farmers. Not just because theyโ€™ll be without some valuable storage but because those outbuildings are often an indication of the state of even more precious resources. If the sad, old barn is falling in, then the soil, wells, field roads and woodlots have all probably endured the same disrepair. The work and resources necessary to restore some of these places to a semblance of wholeness is Herculean.
Regardless, 'contrary farmers' are pouring their hearts into the task. They bring in money from off the farm, which they then apply to amending the soils and repairing or improving the infrastructure of the farm. For some, their farm business is never intended to provide a full-time income; but for many others, the time at an off-farm job is preparation, biding their time as they slowly develop the carrying capacity of their farm ecosystem and business. Itโ€™s an exhausting task, though, and many beginning farmers burn themselves out physically and emotionally before their farmstead is ready to support their family. We have to find ways to responsibly help these farmers catch up on the maintenance backlog." ---- Want more? Keep reading about these "Contrary Farmers" on our website! .
