Grocery difficulties

February 24, 2017

Just a quick update today about my produce progress.  First, I realized while grocery shopping today that my produce consumption is not limited to the produce section.  I also occasionally buy fruits and vegetables in cans and jars. After some thought, I am not going to include cans and jars in my challenge to eat local produce.  Hopefully I can work up to that level eventually but for now, I will confine my local produce pledge to the fresh fruits and vegetables I eat.  


Second, I did not take into account the growth rate of herbs when I promised to grow my own.  My little herb babies are not yet full grown, so I still have to buy the herbs I need for recipes, such as the rosemary I recently purchased (see below).  I did buy the organic option of this herb but the rosemary wasn't local but instead distributed by a company in California, according to the label.  As I mentioned in a previous post, I wish that more companies would clearly state where their food is grown.  I did a cursory internet search for Lucerne Foods to try to figure out where this rosemary might have come from. I came up empty.  


I hope the herbs will be big enough to use soon! I'm excited to cook with herbs I grew myself!
