"Dinners in the Grove" - A Farm-to-Table Dinner Series to Support GrowRIVERSIDE Seedstock in Partnership with The City and Community of Riverside
Duane and I attended this Farm to Table dinner at Charlotte Davidson's Farm in the green belt of Riverside. The green belt is a portion of Riverside CA that is mostly citrus groves or other agricultural uses. The dinner was held to support the Grow Riverside Conference that will be held in June. See Growriverside.com for more information regarding the conference.
Its was a great dinner and I was lucky enough to try stinging nettle salad. It had an interesting flavor. Not sure if I want to try it again - but it was not bad. I am always hoeing up stinging nettle and cursing it, so it was wierd to be eating it. The orange blossoms were in full bloom and the temperature was around 70 degrees so it was a beautiful night.

Here are some pictures I took of the table and group of people milling around the house (or bar).
