Many people miss the connection that agriculture is not a native thing for us homo sapiens; let alone that our current way of life is relatively new. Farmers Markets celebrate the joy many people get from growing food and is a great social activity as well. If I was rich, I would never buy from the mega chain supermarket, unfortunately there are some things that I must buy. Well, most things really. At this point in time, everything. I am hoping my onions at least take off. I was doing really well with my celery but my over exuberant dog decided to try and bring in squirrel for dinner and slid through my poor celery. Ah well, I will buy another stalk and try again soon. I just read a really fun blog which prompted this one! So I shared. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

Here’s what he’s growing:
