FOOD

Finished Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver. It was quite good. Now i am feeling the need to go down to our Farmer's Market tomorrow! It is about how the author's family feeds themselves off local or home-grown food for a year. It reminded me strongly of The Omnivore's DIlemma by Michael Pollan, another wonderful book about food, where it comes from and what really goes into growing it.

I have to say that i know the teensiest amount about how food grows. really, other than knowing strawberries come in late spring and corn, watermelon and tomatoes basil in summer i don't have the faintest idea about what grows when. but i am really inspired to learn.

  1. I've been wanting to read this one, but haven't gotten around to it. Never heard of The Omnivore's Dilemma...it sounds awfully good, too. In fact, I might have to read it first. Thanks.

  2. I felt inspired to learn more about where food grows as well. I found you through the Hidden Side of the Leaf and linked to your review in my post. Here is the link to my review if you are interested:
