Have you ever wondered where your food comes from?
How many miles away were some of these items produced and shipped from?
Nothing makes me happier than knowing where and who grew my food. This year, we grew pumkins, green beans and lots of tomatoes in the garden. We had some fennel, lots of herbs like basil and cilantro and we even experimented with melons…let’s just say that we have quite a lot to learn about melons! I enjoy gardening and picking fresh food right outside my door.
One thing I definitely do not have in my garden is chickens…We love eating farm eggs and if you have never eaten one, do yourself a favor and go buy some! The taste is completely different than the eggs you buy at the supermarket. The yolk is a brilliant yellow that is rich and nutritious.
I eat eggs that are produced by happy, stress-free, well-fed hens. They roam freely, picking at the ground. Some are even bold enough to jump into your car if you leave the doors open for a few minutes!
It is organic life at its best.
Farm season is slowing down and soon coming to an end. The pumpkins are ready for Halloween and Thanksgiving pies, we are picking the last flowers before the field is turned under and a cover crop is planted.
Even Otis, the farm dog, is enjoying a snooze in the fall sun!
I might just do the same today!
