First Post!

The purpose of this blog is two fold; it's partly to follow my journey into eating fresh local food, and partly a food diary of what I do with all this in-season stuff.

How Local is Local?

Local is from Calvert Farm located in Cecil County, Maryland.
Local is from farms and ranches ranging from a 40 minute drive to 10 minutes to get eggs, lamb, beef, and pork.
Local is from my 'Victory Garden' in my backyard.

I still go to grocery stores and my wife and I still plan out meals, but we base our decisions around whats fresh and what we've recently received from one of the above sources. It's a very different way of eating and can be challenging, so I wanted to show people what exactly we do and share in the lessons learned. Maybe you'll like it and want to join in, too, but no one wants you to bite off more than you can chew!

will be once a week; preferably on Wednesdays, because that is my CSA pick up day. However as that moves, publishing is subject to change.

  1. Hi Tony and thanks for the visit! I'm excited about your new blog and looking forward to following your journey. We also try to eat products grown as close to home as possible as well as growing as much of our own as we can in spite of a high altitude climate. Carmon
