Local Food

Hello there!  Tonight’s dinner featured local produce from the Saratoga farmer’s market, as well as, my family’s very own backyard garden!

I wanted to buy local chicken or another kind of meat but it was wayyyy too pricey.  Even though I like to support local businesses and organic foods, it’s not feasible for every item my family enjoys eating.  We eat locally as much as we can and also grow many of our vegetables in the garden, so I would say we are doing our part in reducing our carbon footprints and being pesticide-free!

What items do you buy or grow locally?
