May has been such a wonderful month. The garden is starting to produce. Today we ate fresh spinach (from thinning the rows) and green onions that we grew ourselves...local and organic. It doesn't get any better than this. The spinach made it's way into green smoothies and a little salad. The green onions were salad fixings, and in soup and on top of baked potatos.
We have just found a local organic farm very near our place that sells produce, chicken, and eggs. I'm looking forward to going there for a visit to see what they are all about. On my bookshelf for the past two weeks, I've read the Ominvore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan, and Animal Vegetable Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver. Both great reads with lots of ideas and opinions about the industrial food system.
