New England orchards

To me, walking through an orchard is like truly being a part of the cooking process. To pick the fruit that will go into a cobbler or get noshed on as we drive the hillside really makes me feel alive. To hear the bees hum and see them pass by makes me relish not only a blueberry more but it also reminds me how so many hands have a part in our kitchen table and what goes on it. When you walk through an orchard and buy fresh locally grown produce, the carbon footprint has been lessened. The big chain store then can keep a few more of its chemically saturated and manipulated produce for itself.
To see my children washed in sunshine and running through a garden of sunflowers just makes those roadside veggies taste even better.
So the next time you pass a farm stand, pick your own orchard, or farmers market, stop,and pick up something truly good for you. Mind, body, and footprint.
