Seasonal food!

To me, the out-of-season food at the grocery store tastes so lame that i don't even bother.  We eat peaches during peach season (local!)  And we gorge on apples 'round here in the fall.  Eating something that you just picked is totally different than something that was picked in Chile 3 weeks ago. 

We've got crappy farmland here in NH... but hardy farmers, so they make a go of it.  We had local corn tonight.  Mmmmmmmmm.

LOL once they're steamed in the corn pot, you'd never know they were... ok, I'm totally lying. {#Puke}As a kid, I wouldn't even touch the cobs that had worms in them. I think my logic was that I'd get worm stuff on me and die. {#Lol}

The book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver describes in detail how to live on local food. A very enjoyable read.

I do like the buy local concept, and we try to hit the farmers market when we can and we do grow a lot of our own veggies, but that won't help us much in February.

wait. we can't do that. it's not local.
 

I think that they are really trying to reduce food miles- ie not having your fruit flown in from Australia at certain times of the year.  Trying to eat as local as you can and concentrate on eating seasonal food rather than strawberries in December.
