DryStoneGarden pointed me towards this article to the (then) Next Farmer in Chief. You may enjoy the article as much as I did. The author, MICHAEL POLLAN, talks about how much fossil fuels are used to move food all over our nation. We can all do our part to reduce the strain on our future lives by eating food grown close to home. Better yet - we can eat food from our own backyard / roof / window sill. Keep growing.
