Hasta luego, à bientôt

Later tonight, I'm getting on a plane and flying to Madrid, Spain. From there, I'll travel to the region of Asturias in the northwest of the country, where I'll be volunteering on a small-scale vegetable farm that I found through the organization called WWOOF. After a month there, I'll pack up and head to a different farm, located in the southeast of France, where I will remain for one month before flying home.

As I've made evident on the blog, I've been getting pretty into gardening on my deck lately. So I thought I'd take a little time on some actual farms to see how this growing thing really works. I figure it will only serve to expand my knowledge of food and its production. What I learn will no doubt be relevant to what I usually write about here on the blog. So I'm going to try to do my best to update here, when I can, with some photos and observations. Wish me luck!
