Buy Local Produce. It's The Right Thing to Do.

First, Mississippi Kitchen got a makeover and is a much brighter, happier place.  A big thank you and shout out to Michelle at Shabby Creations.  She "saw" what was in my mind and captured it perfectly! Some people are so talented!

And for some strange reason, my comment box is not appearing.  I'm working on the problem and hope to get it solved soon.

After a couple of back to back trips in the past week, I'm finally home and ready to settle into a nice summer rhythm.  I  just need to get unpacked first and go through 400 pieces of mail.   My summer plans this year include putting up copious amounts of fresh vegetables, which I have already started doing.  I usually do a little bit each summer, but this year I'm going all out.  And how fortunate for me that some friends of ours have opened a vegetable farm near by, making my produce shopping much more convenient.  I love it when people do nice things like that for me.

So, before I tackle my mile-high pile of laundry, I want to remind you to support your local vegetable farm.

Now your local vegetable farm may or may not be called Dyess Produce.

It may or may not have a red tractor sitting by the tomato patch.

And it may or may not have a gray horse just over yonder on the other side of the fence, but I'm sure it will have plenty of fresh, beautiful veggies.


And I'll be willing to bet that the prices will be pretty reasonable.  And I think we could all use a break on food prices, don't you agree?

So buy local.  It's just the right thing to do.

The zucchini calls me.  I'll be back soon with a recipe!

Pin It!
