Farm to Fable

Quite interesting story "Farm to Fable" about BS farm to table restaurants and farmer's markets in Tampa, Florida. The FM are much more legit in Cali, but restaurants, who knows. Food quality is obviously very important to me. The way i can afford expensive ingredients is to grow and/or cook them myself rather than going out to eat. From the Florida story, it sounds like even if you are spending alot in a restaurant you could still be getting cheap/low quality ingredients. I wish Americans respected the true cost of food more, and people could make an honest living producing and selling good quality food.

my 'shady' plot at the garden, also have a sunny plot. this one is shaded by a big eucalypt in the morning. foreground is a fuyu persimmon, middle ground a walnut that is super confused by the drought - hasn't leafed out yet. also coastal CA poppies, arugula flowers, etc
