Saturday nights' harvest becomes Monday's vegetable sauté.
There is something basically good about eating what you grew from seed, a connection to the earth, to self reliance. What is novel today for a middle class white guy was a necessity not so long ago. How is it that we've become so disconnected?
Sure we got lazy - buying food in shrink wrap, but that's not where it comes from. Next time you eat some vegetables remember the hunched man or woman working in the hot sun, picking your produce, working harder than you do for less money.
Better yet grow your own!
Let's reconnect with what we've misplaced.
