Thoughts for Monday

For $1.98 per seed pack, these too can be yours!

“Eat responsibly. [E]ating is an agricultural act….(consumers of food) must understand that eating takes place inescapably in the world, that it is inescapably an agricultural act, and that how we eat determines, to a considerable extent, how the world is used…. This is a simple way of describing a relationship that is inexpressibly complex. To eat responsibly is to understand and enact, so far as one can, this complex relationship.”*

Wanna commit an agricultural act of your own? Our mailbox has already seen a couple of seed catalogs this year. When they arrive at your place, do a little bookmarking, and do a bit more mental gardening for next year: how about more vegetables? It will be so fun, and so very good to eat! And, well, it might just make you feel a bit more connected with your world.

  1. Ha ha ha ha ha! My seed list is already way out of hand!!! At this point I am not allowed to add more, unless I trade somthing else off the list. I have maxed out my seed space and seed money.

  2. You are absolutely correct! Thanks for the post. I am already missing greens from our garden (buried under snow)
