I picked it up at Borders, I had seen it before and had not been sure it was for me. But then I took the plunge.
I couldn’t put it down! Staying up way too late when I had to reach the next morning…I enjoyed the author’s writing, her style at once comfortable and cerebral. I loved the format – written chronologically over the course of a year – a year when Kingsolver and her family are growing their own, raising their own, baking their own…
It was an eye-opener in many ways. I know I want to eat local and organic…but now I feel I know more of the "why". We have been shopping at the Co-op and the Farmer’s Market. This year we bought a share of the harvest – delivered in weekly veggie boxes – from Calvert Farms, a local CSA program. Its heavenly to get gorgeous fresh veggies each week, and there is an element of surprise. For the first time, I feel I am more in tune with the seasons and the harvest.
Off to stir-fry fresh zucchini, peppers, and local mushrooms…Maybe tomorrow I will use one of Kingsolver’s recipes from the book…
One thought on “Everyone should read this book!”
I’ve looked at this at Amazon, looks good! I think I’ll order it!
Hope you’re doing well. I think of you fondly each time I look at my Goddess! 🙂
