Married x 7 years... I became interested in supporting local foods while reading Animal Vegetable Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver. I also have a best friend who is a big supporter and who has introduced me to many local foods resources and has taught me that it can be done...anywhere. My husband and I have always been interested in becoming more self-sufficient one day.
Any fresh vegetables, except mushrooms! I don't really branch out with meats more than chicken, fish/shellfish, beef, and pork - but I love them all. Some favorite dishes: butternut squash, pumpkin cheesecake, tomato sandwhiches all summer long and many more...

Thanks for the warm welcome, Sarah! Nope, no composting just yet. I've tried to sit down and read the Rodale Book of composting, but it's just not as entertaining as say, Animal Vegetable Miracle. Or Omnivore's Delimma. Or Eat, Pray, Love for that matter. Good luck to ya though.
