What exactly is good food? We begin here:
Early evening, summer breeze, seed starts decorate freshly tilled soil, toddlers toddling, cameras clicking, children swarm the play structure, picnic tables covered in cloth, generations mingling, dogs waiting, and everyone eating, planting, sharing --all together in a garden-- surrounded by Ware Farm.Ware Farm is a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) and Organic Farm --and all of us pot-luckers and Children's Garden planters are share holders in this summer's bounty. This week's highlight is strawberries, the loveliest strawberries I can recall. There is not a child in sight without a juice stained chin... and all are happy and fed, a perfect trifecta: belly, heart and soul.
Now, back to books. Last week Michael Pollen wrote "The Food Movement, Rising" for the New York Review of Books. The five books he lists at the beginning of the article and the article itself explain why we were gathered to plant a garden and feast on still-warm-from-the-sun-strawberries at a farm that many of us simply, love.

Have you ever picked strawberries and do you want to? They are ripe and ready for picking!

We couldn't find a resource for Farmer's Markets and CSA's worldwide --let us know if you have a tip!
Have a great weekend enjoy cooking, eating and of course, reading!
