Farm to Table – Good for You and Your Wallet!
It’s that time of year again! Today I saw my first roadside stand featuring a small farm marketing thier vegetables straight to the customer. I asked the young girl working there when these were harvested and she said “this morning”! Wow you can’t get any fresher than that!
You cannot get fresher vegetables than buying directly from the farm. Farm to table was the way of life in the old days. Most folks had their own gardens as well. I was in a grocery yesterday and the condition of the vegetables was lacking. After shipping, sitting and being handled a ton of times, they just don’t hold up as well.
So if you see one of those roadside stands, pull in and get some fresh vegetables or fruit. With farm to table you won’t just be eating well, but your wallet will thank you as well! Looks like it will be fresh Zuccini and Squash for dinner tonight!
