Vermilionville’s Seed to Skillet quarterly series continues this Saturday when Vermilionville artisan Greg Guidroz walks guests through the intricate process of how to plant, care for and gather crops to feed themselves as well as their families. For the second quarter, Seed to Skillet will focus on harvesting vegetables like tomatoes, okra, corn, beans and early peppers and figs. And with this harvest, Guidroz will be conducting cooking demos on how to prepare fig preserves, salsa and even macque choux. Guidroz will also go over other gardening topics such as fertilizing with manure teas, old time additions, organic pest solutions and preparing a fall crop list.
