As is eating something local at every meal. Easy to do if most of your food comes from a CSA, a regional food service, and your garden.
I count my garden as supporting local farmers as most of the plants were purchased from local farms. I don’t buy plants from national chains like Lowe’s or Home Depot, but from local farms like Sharp’s or Greenway. Both Howard County farms.
Today was the first day of the challenge. Breakfast included toast with CSA raspberry jam, for me. And for my husband, cereal with CSA blueberries.
Lunch for him. Tuna salad with my onions. For me, cucumbers, tomatoes and carrots, dipped in a yogurt dressing. Yogurt from PA. Cucumbers and tomatoes, my garden. Carrots, CSA.
Peaches from the CSA for a snack.
Big Cork, from Rohrersville MD. Ready to go to the table with some of my flowers from my front yard.
CSA chicken thighs being baked with CSA potatoes, my onions and Wayne Nell smoked bacon (Friends and Farms supplier from York PA). They buy from farms in the area surrounding York.
Baywater Greens from Salisbury supplied the leaf lettuce. CSA spinach, beets, gouda, blueberries.
Oh, I forgot, there was corn on the cob, too. From the CSA.
Very little today that didn’t come locally. Off to a good start. On to Day Two tomorrow.
