Re: Buying Local

Have you ever picked strawberries and compared the taste to what you buy at Wegman's? it is about $2/pint to pick which is not only cheaper than the store, the taste is not even comparable. Have you ever had home grown zucchini, cherry tomatoes, green beans, green peppers, any vegetables? Once you eat home grown or 'locally grown' fruit and veggies, you will never argue this statement again. When you try these fruits and veggies, it is like you are eating them for the first time. I would imagine the nutrients are much greater in the locally grown too.
