Avatar 6:13am Sem Chumbo:

Good morning, Jeffrey. Hello, wide-awake-for- hours JakeGould, owner and lead contributor to Wacky Ideas Magazine.
Is it time to plant parsnips? Zone 5b.
  6:16am JakeGould:

@Sem: Well, to be fair I fell asleep at 9:30pm-ish, and then woke up at 2:30am-ish. Which is all the side effect of me forcing myself to get back to sleep at around 11:00pm-ish and waking up at 6:00am-ish. Meaning, I will be signing off to complete my sleep duties soon enough. And yes, parsnips.
Avatar 6:19am Sem Chumbo:

A wise person are you, JakeGould.
So, I can put you down for a cubit of hand-raised, nun-selected rainbow and unicorn designer parsnips, then?
  6:20am Cooh John:

Good morning JD, JG, SC, and initials to come. Wish I could help with your agricultural query, Sem.
Avatar 6:24am Brian in UK:

Bill Fay is like the flood gates released these days.
Avatar 6:25am Brian in UK:

....or maybe that volcano in Chile that just took off and surprised everyone. Having been dormant for years. Better analogy.
Avatar 6:27am Sem Chumbo:

Me, too, Cooh John. Planting in a short season place such as this is anxiety-making, for sure.
  6:27am JakeGould:

@Sem: I thought you ran a CSA?
Avatar 6:29am Brian in UK:

@Sem ah the sweetness and aroma of a fresh parsnip. Wish I could magic our rotavator over your way to help.
Avatar 6:29am Sem Chumbo:

Can't swing a dead cattail round here without hitting a CSA farmer. I specalize in the aforementioned parsnips, seaweed-grown taters and garlic. Lots and lots of garlic.
Avatar 6:30am Brian in UK:

sem what is CSA?
Avatar 6:32am Sem Chumbo:

@BiUK:speaking of noses: www.pigerhenricus.com...
Avatar 6:33am Sem Chumbo:

@BiUK: Community supported agriculture. Pay money up fromt in the spring, and get weekly baskets of in-season produce from a local producer. Getting more popular every year round here.
  6:34am Cooh John:

Every farmer I've talked to is anxiety-ridden. When every year you bet the farm on the seed planted in the ground....
Avatar 6:36am Brian in UK:

Sem, love it. There are so many gins on the market these days. Even Gin Festivals over here.

We have something similar to CSA but it is not community based just straight business
  6:38am Cooh John:

@ Sem; when is your last yearly frost date. May 15 here.
Avatar 6:39am Brian in UK:

Sem Talking of seaweed, ever eaten Laver bread? Delish, as Bertie W might say.
Avatar 6:42am Sem Chumbo:

@Cooh John. I live on tidal salt water, at sea level, so it's USUALLY the first week in April. But this has been an unusual weather year here, hence: anxiety.
Avatar 6:44am Mark:

I just learned about laverbread. Fantastic stuff. It can even cure EXPOSURE TO RADIOACTIVITY! In New Jersey, it went down in the 30s last night and they issued a freeze warning. Farmers/gardeners beware.
Avatar 6:45am Sem Chumbo:

@biUK: I had not until this moment. Bookmarked, with thanks. Tourists around here at breakfast are subjected to dulse, a dried red seaweed with your lifetime iodine needs in every bite. It truly is delicious, but an acquired taste. Start now by sipping from the iodine bottle and eventually you'll build up your tastebuds.
Avatar 6:50am Brian in UK:

The lady came from Balitmore, said her name was Susan Moore. This was in my head last week.

Swansea Market is the place to get it. Bit out of the way. Round the corner is the Gower penisular where the sheep graze on the salt marshes. Delish again.
  7:14am Cooh John:

Jeffrey, nice show. A continuance of last night when I saw John Prine and Leo Kottke.
  7:36am P-90:

@Chem Sumbo: They do have dulse in the UK, it's served in restaurants and inns (yes, often at breakfast) in Scotland and Ireland, though the English seem to have abolished it.
Avatar 7:42am Sem Chumbo:

@P-90: I suppose the latter is because fried dulse would be too repugnant even for a typical English breakfast fry-up. Difficult to imagine:-D.
No Bushwick dulse dealers, then? Not obscure enough?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:53am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- beautiful & excellent as ever DJ JD.
  7:54am P-90:

I don't think there are local sources for dulse. Maybe you can send some down, maybe get it to "trend" as "niche produce."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...kale chips are trendy just now of course...
  7:55am P-90:

"Bushwick Dulse Dealers" sounds like a band that plays Irish pubs.
  7:56am P-90:

@RR: Kale chips are EVERYwhere in New York.
  7:59am P-90:

@Sem: There you go, maybe Rabbit's got the right idea: find a way to turn dulse into "chips" and you're on your way. You can do flavors: salsa, cheddar, curry, cinnamon...
Avatar 8:00am Brian in UK:

Jeffrey, Are the Chapin Sisters related to Harry?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:06am Jeffrey Davison:

Yes, Brian...daughters of Tom, nieces of Harry.
Avatar 8:06am Sem Chumbo:

Leave it to SHRUNKEN PLANET listeners to solve problems of great import. My thx, RRN63 and the redoubtable P-90.
All this deep thinking likely impossible without this morning's stellar soundtrack@Jeffrey.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...the dulse & the dulcet...but never dull.
Avatar 8:25am Sem Chumbo:

Name for product: Dulce a Mare.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:27am Mike East:

lovely sounds for a lovely morning
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41am annie:

so, i've been listening from the sidelines.. wanted to come in the room and say hi to everyone. DJ JD, thanks so much for the music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42am annie:

and the exciting news is that i joined twitter.. very interesting medium for communication.
Avatar 8:42am Sem Chumbo:

And hello right back, annie.
Avatar 8:45am Brian in UK:

Thank you for the show Jeffrey and comestible related comments.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46am annie:

yep, i missed the food talk... bummer
  8:58am P-90:

@annie: then join us next week for "Shrunken Planet: Food Talk with Musical Accompaniment" You could even suggest a topic to get the discussion started.
Avatar 10:33am Van in DC:

Thanks for the Joni. Just found out yesterday about her being in an unresponsive coma, with not a lot of hope of getting out of it. Wow.
Avatar 1:25pm Van in DC:

Well...saw a conflicting story that apparently Joni is actually fine. Huh.
