As a market gardener, this makes me sad. I like being a market gardener because I sell directly to my customers. My food costs roughly the same as it does in a grocery store, but the profit comes to me, not the middle man. Some say our prices should be lower than the grocery store because there is not a middle man, but growing without pesticides requires extra hours weeding, bug picking, tilling, etc. I feel I have a higher quality product than the 'sprayed broccoli' I just bought. I also grow many (not exculisive) interesting, heirloom varieties, that require more acreage as yields are lower than conventional hybrid varieties. Anyway, this isn't to talk about how much my tomatoes should cost...
And, in a semi-supportive way, I put strawberries on my Dorset cereal this morning.
I had the other half of yesterday's Cliff bar and an apple throughout the morning.
Sashimi Lunch. The perfect mid week lunch.
The afternoon was really dragging as I was thinking about grey kitty and going home to plant. I feel really sad for grey kitty. Hopefully he gains some weight and becomes a permanent member of our farm. So, to distract myself, I had a smoothie, and also some chocolate from a coworkers Easter bunny.
At home I planted a couple rows of peas and made a tasty bbq dinner. Simply bbq chicken thighs with bbq sauce, roast sweet potatoes, that turned out sort of mashed, and steamed broccoli.
A great bowl of frozen yogurt after dinner.
