Tonight we had a "local" meal. Everything was either grown or made by us or from a local (within 50 miles) grower. So, what did we have? We had pork from a pig that one of the boys raised, barbeque sauce made by me, lettuce, onions and kale from our garden and beets from a local grower. We are growing beets but ours are not ready yet, I guess I need to get them started earlier next year. Then for dessert we had fresh strawberries that we had picked at a local farm.
