Just thought I'd pop in here to write abit as I process my thoughts about seasonal eating.
We grow most of our own vegies and a reasonable about of our meat. We have a wide selection of fruit and vegies. We are very rich in this sense.
At the moment we have apples, pears, the last of the plums, we still have a few berries, carrots, silverbeet, beetroots, capsicum, spring onions, onions, garlic, potatoes, tomatoes, variety of herbs, lettuce. I am sure I have missed some things.
We swap vegies for raw biodynamic cows milk, we have fresh eggs,So- answer me...why do I want to buy pineapple, bananas, oranges (when we don't even eat all of ours when they are in season), Grapes- again, we had ample to share over summer.
I feel like I don't appreciate the things we have in abundance and want the nice shiny 'other things' that are in the shops. Our food is real food, why would anyone want to buy other stuff when they have access to such good stuff? I am open to your thoughts and suggestions...
