I got extremely busy at the end of last week and did not add a follow up post during the Eat Local Challenge Week, as I had intended to. It was a fun challenge and I stopped at more local farmstands than I might have otherwise.
Although I continue to use items outside of the 100 mile range, I am really inspired to incorporate even more local foods than I had been previously.
We just got a couple of days of much needed rain and the garden looks great.
Thank you to "the girls" for insect control, compost, and eggs.
I made potato salad from our garden potatoes this week.
Garden cucumbers with (local) sour cream and fresh dill.
...and I just picked up some wild blackberry jelly from a local farm stand. I can't wait to try it on the homemade bread that my friend Erica made this morning!
