Following the seasons using social media

I don’t know why I didn’t think of this earlier.  For who knows how long, farms have been getting onto the Web, particularly social media.  An easy way to follow the seasons is to follow farms on Twitter or like them on Facebook.  Click here to see what a CSA local to me broadcasts on Facebook.

Interestingly, with this method you can gather a convenience sample of broadcasts.  I’m hoping to use this information to set more reasonable goals for my garden next year.

I bet you can achieve similar results by following farm-to-table restaurants.  Your mileage may vary, but at least you’ll have a better idea of what to order the next time you dine out.
