77. it was an eye-opening book for me
There isn't a lot I can do about here, except read labels. The idea of buying local is not new, of course but I think it's the right idea. We do not need asparagus flown in from Peru (or wherever he said it came from). But if we eats stuff in season and get by the rest of the year, we can improve the food system in this country.

The only thing that I wonder about is how farmers like the one at Polyface can provide food for millions of people. The industrial food system developed to get things everywhere and quickly. How we change that so everyone has adequate, good food at a reasonable price is beyond me at the moment.
