Farmer's Market

I love this time of year in New England - I end up at one of the local farm stands almost every day to revel in the gorgeous summer vegetables. Last week, I bought a head of lettuce so beautiful it could have been a flower. And it really is true that fresh, locally grown food tastes so much better than the sad things we buy in huge supermarkets that have to travel thousands of miles to reach us. I'm working hard to focus on eating local foods and to make sure that my kids learn about eating responsibly, both for the sake of their own health and the health of their environment. I have a long list of books waiting to be read, including Barbara Kingsolver's Animal, Vegetable, Miracle and Frances Moore Lappe's Hope's Edge: The Next Diet for a Small Planet.
On a more frivolous note, I'm working on some food-inspired jewelry designs. I have a garlic clove pendant in my Etsy shop now, and I've got more to come later this week:

Enjoy midsummer, and eat well! :)
