Spring is springing life afresh

25 Apr

I am so delighted that the past winter has been milder that we here in my neck of the wood is accustomed to. I am more excited about starting my vegetable gardening and to frequent the farmer’s market and start eating fresh f rom the land. I hope many of you, my subscribers and others have taken steps to wean yourselves off prefabricated foods and that you have started buying some of your food from the organic side of the produce section. You might pay a little more cash for good food but aren’t you worth it? Isn’t it time we stand up to those who feed us chemicals in our food to boost profits?  Once we stand up and say we’re not going to take this anymore, producers will have to change the way they make our foods. We  the consumers have immeasurable power. We have the choice of how we use and spend our money.   It is we who give producers the cue about how much we will go along with their polluting ways. So come on now, let’s work together for better foods and at the same time for the health of the planet as well.
