We are also hopeful that the weather forecast for "scattered showers" will have them scattered elsewhere, and that we might be able to take that first step to planting our garden this season!
That leads me to a discussion of this book.
I became aware of the book when The Husband and I decided to return to campus for More Than A Vacation, an event for alumni/spouses held during the summer. Developing the theme from the book as the basis of our activities, it was suggested that we read the book before we came to that summer's event.
Well, the experiment was apparently successful, as they are still residing in Southwest Virginia and have operated a restaurant - The Harvest Table - using the same concept for several years! Ms. Kingsolver was even the speaker at the college graduation a couple of years ago, and she is often seen participating in campus events.
The book was especially interesting to me because we are real believers in growing vegetables and supporting area farmers by shopping the local markets. I was also made more aware of reading ingredient labels and began to be more careful with what I buy. We are dedicated to gardening organically, and we have our own compost which is used to supplement the soil.
I hope you will find much to enjoy in this day!
Thank you for reading. I really appreciate your comments.
