I’m lucky, I guess. I grow lots of my own vegetables and herbs (the tomatoes have been great!) and I buy the rest of what I need at the farmers market or a good food co-op (Corners of the Mouth, in Mendocino village, or the Ukiah Natural Foods Co-op in Ukiah), or occasionally Harvest Market. I would get chickens but I’ll be moving by the end of the year, most likely, and don’t want to subject chickens to the move. But when I settle again, look out, Farm City!
Why go to so much trouble for food? Why not just truck on down to the grocery store, or even simpler, McDonald’s?
Answering that is what this blog will be about.
