This is our first winter as a family just eating LOCAL fruits and vegetables. Actually we started on August 1 of this year with the promise of NOT buying imported fruits and vegetables, both in an effort to reduce carbon footprint as well as eating healthier. It has been a lot of fun so far, seeking out enough local fruits and vegetables to add to those we have put away for the winter from our own garden.
Starting to hear from others in the area who want to do the same, but are lost as to where to start, so started this blog to exchange ideas on the topic. We are giving up oranges, bananas, and other fruit - but finding replacements for those. Much of what we eat is just habit anyway.
