Today I have lots of food on my brain! 🙂
Tomorrow I begin a new little “business” I’m starting. It’s the beginnings of us *someday* being able to grow, sell, and deliver farm fresh foods. But for now, since all we’ve grown & can sell are chickens, I am picking up foods from other local farms. I also do bulk orders of coconut oil, coconut milk, beans, seeds, etc., and divide them up and deliver. I originally thought I would do this every week, but after this week’s amount of work, I am thinking every 2 weeks will be sufficient. =)
So, today, I went to a farm, one that my husband and I have been buying from for the past two summers. We really believe in the phrase “Shake the hand that feeds you,” (thank you Michael Pollan), though, I can’t say I remember us ever shaking Bill’s hand. 🙂 But at least we have conversations with him, and we know where he lives, and we know that he grows our food–and since we don’t eat grains, and he grows veggies, he grows a lot of what we eat.
I brought two huge rubbermaid tubs, filled them with veggies, plus had more! And today, Bill (a very nice farmer) gave me a bunch of pumpkins so that I can roast them for seeds! And, a bunch of little gourds to give out to my customers friends tomorrow! Yay!
I will be car-schooling (Story of the World on CDÂ and a break for Library Story Time) and bringing veggies, fruits, pumpkin seeds, and coconut oil to friends tomorrow. If you live around Canby, Mulino, Molalla or Oregon City and you want to be on my e-mail list, just let me know! 🙂
Another reason food is on my mind~~I have been creating GAPS and SCD friendly Thanksgiving and Christmas recipes…..stay tuned for more information on this project!
