We're eating local this summer. AdRi can't even stop at the store on her way home to buy berries. She stops at the U-Pick and picks them herself. How local can you get? I'm eagerly awaiting the tomatoes mere steps from our front door. And if the eggplant ever kicks into gear, mere steps from our back door. In the meantime, we have...
Cherries: 60 miles
Eggs: 2 blocks
Love that. How local can you go?
We've been pricing eating local. At this point it literally costs twice as much for local fruits and vegetables in this part of CT. With the price of food and gas, unfortunately we can't justify paying the local prices.
We are trying to eat local also. I am glad you posted how many miles away each food item is. We go to the local farmers markets and farms. Also, I am loving all of your pictures and recipes.
We've been eating local since before it was cool. Then again, it's not that hard in Mississippi with our never ending growing season.
ooh really? eggs two blocks away? where do you get them? i'm in north portland too. i'd love to find local eggs that close!
ooh, i need your egg source, too. We got eggs through sauvie island organics' csa last year and then they quit providing them, just when we'd become totally addicted!
I think I have fed those chickens before...Very nice bunch.
It is so easy to eat local in Portland, sometimes even for free and I feel so very lucky to live here. My backyard raspberries, own backyard egg gifting flock and loads of free fruit trees in the neighborhood are just wonderful.
I swear, your food pix and descriptions are always so YUMMY LOOKING and SOUNDING that I have to run in the kitchen and start cooking.
i am impressionable like that.
love you, Lelo.
I'm a local eater too (I try, anyway). Great blog!
Those eggs look fabulous! No pickle relish? Perfect.
