Here's a nice piece on an amazing turning point we just went through.

For the first time in nearly a century, white bread is in the minority in America.

Hope lives that Americans are developing taste.

Sustainable Food

This is what they taught us when I was just a kid......crop rotation, food storage and the rest of the basic common sense things.

Maine Town Declares Food Sovereignty

Woo-Hoo.......a little Maine has done something that is looooooong overdue!!!!! Hope this catches on like wildfire.......nationwide.

Maybe there is something here that could breathe new life into the Lexington "chicken fight".

Restricting Outdoor Access for Organic Poultry

Seems like the USDA & the FDA are hell-bent on destroying the family farms that are left......while making it harder for for consumers to be confident in their organic & free range food choices.

Is there anybody left in government that actually supports the enterprise of family farming?

Even I was surprised to find this at the Krogers in Lexington. It tastes like chicken.

I wish I could say that I bought local tomatoes today, but that would be a lie ... it's too early in the season.

I was in the Wal-Mart for something else and took a peek at the tomatoes. The display was nearly empty and they were the sorriest specimens I've ever seen.

But later I passed Layne's Country Store on US 11 between Lexington and Natural Bridge, and found bushels of lovely looking tomatoes.

Of course, their beauty is probably only skin deep since they doubtless came from Florida or some other remote place, but I try to buy at Layne's when I can because sometimes their stuff is local.

:coffee:

PS Before Mr. Layne died, he used to stock the most amazing double-yolk eggs, every one of them guaranteed to be a double. They are no longer available, drat.

WalMart was selling rotten watermelons yesterday. Nothing new... Terrible produce management, and the wrong venue for fresh/"local".

A little closer to Lex is Herman's Produce. I can't compare it to Layne's since I've not been there yet, but I will check it out.

Cheers, all

Thanks for the tip.

I was somehow not aware of Herman's, and was within feet of it yesterday on my way to Donald's Meat Processing down the road. Donald's has about the only beef that doesn't sicken my wife and me. It's a vertically integrated operation that grazes, feeds recycled beer brewery mash, butchers, and sells retail ... an extreme rarity in this day and age.

My dog loved the free bones for a year or so, but after restaurants started coming in for soup bones, they realized they had a marketable product. They now sting me for $1.50/pound. The pooch loves 'em.

:coffee:

PS. They were sold out of dinosaur legs yesterday.

Agree wholeheartedly on Donald's. We've had their beef, chicken, and bacon, all first rate.
