the new read of the day.

I just ordered this from Amazon! There was a new word used in the review, at least new to me, Locovore. Interesting. It is an interesting concept, one in which I am trying to embrace. I noticed, while eating my warm soybeans, that they came from China, while my house was covered with soy beatles, due to the recent harvest. All of the soy grown was for cattle I am on a quest to find local farmers to buy from!! I will do this!! As I throw wilted, wrinkled turnips into the garden for mulch..apples I didn't get to, concord grapes that made my basement smell like that of a wino! I do have apple cider fermenting however..(oh, thats the wino smell) waiting to turn to vinegar-half a freezer of frozen tomatos, and grapes, and zucchini~ all in all not to bad for a first year, and I hadn't even planned on having a garden!! Oh, and pickles, I have green tomato pickles!
Today I heard of jalapeno and eggplant pickles..sounds interesting to me! Anyone know? Alright, I am off to read the book. It should have loaded on my kindle by now. I look forward to a review...has anyone else read it?
