It’s been a long time since I saw this. Good stuff.
I like the Urban Homesteaders’ philosophy on homegrown vs. local vs. organic:
If not FROM BACKYARD then locally produced.
If not LOCALLY PRODUCED, then Organic.
If not ORGANIC, then Family farm.
If not FAMILY FARM, then Local business.
If not a LOCAL BUSINESS, then Fair Trade.
As much as I want to be a farmer’s market groupie, it’s been challenging because the big market is on Saturday. Yesterday, though, I managed to make it to the short local Wednesday market (4-6pm) and was able to pick up lettuce, zucchini, yellow squash and cherry tomatoes. I’m excited about my first farmer’s market purchase.
