Hitting the Right Notes

A while ago I wrote that there must be some karmic shoe that was going to drop at any moment because things were going just a little too well with this writing thing and how could I possibly be allowed to do something so fun and get paid for it. But so far, at least, the footwear seems to be staying in the closet.

What brought this to mind is the new issue of Edible Portland that hit newsstands yesterday, and I'm happy to say that my first Edible Notes column is in there and looking mighty fine. It's a short collection of interesting food notes from around the area, not unlike what you find here at GoodStuffNW, and it'll be featured in every issue.

Which is where you come in. If you have a tidbit you've run across that seems intriguing, whether it's about an upcoming event (think seasonally...the next issue is for spring '08), a place or a product that has a sustainable, seasonal focus, let me know. It might just end up as a Note!

As a bonus, here's a short video about this month's cover couple, Michael and Jill Paine of Gaining Ground Farm in Yamhill:

Hey! Welcome to the "Edible" borg, er, family. Will your story be online? I am writing for Edible Sacramento and am having just as much fun as you seem to be. Congrats!

Good job with your first notes column! How exciting and well deserved!!

And for those in SE, particularly Sellwood/Moreland, you can taste the fruits of the Gaining Ground Farm at Kevin Sandri's Garden State food cart on SE 13th & Lexington, as he buys almost all his produce and his chickens he grills from them.

Hey, HAGC, thanks...it's quite an honor to be part of EP here in Portland. They're really making strides in the community and trying to ask the important questions.

Look for one of my stories in an upcoming issue (and online, too)!

Thanks for the heads-up, BB. For those of you who might have missed the post, Garden State is a great place to grab a bite (and be sure to check out BB's wine shop across the street!).
