To Market, To Market

    Wonderful pictures. We in the states, have removed ourselves from where our food comes from. The thing that struck me was fresh, natural, no additives.
I have some difficulty with the meat aspect. I prefer to not get too close to my meat source. Yes I have fished and done all the baiting and cleaning. Also, one of my grandmothers raised chickens for eggs and meat and I have seen them dispatched, plucked feathers and know how to cut up a bird. Just really prefer not to. I do belong to an organic fruit and vegetable CSA in Trumansburg. Love it.
Thank you for sharing.
