9.0% "[about asparagus] "Pushing a refrigerated green vegetable from one end of the earth to another is, let's face it, a bizarre use of fuel. ... Respecting the dignity of a spectacular food means enjoying it at its best.""

12.0% "I'm fascinated by the author making a correlation between promiscuity and eating food (veggies so far) out of season. Brilliant!"

Antof9 I do too! I'm glad it looks interesting to you -- it's fascinating me so far. And of course, making me think I want to try this too ...

Cathy (cathepsut) Do you like it, is it good? I loved Prodigal Summer...

message 3: by Antof9 (new) - added it

Antof9 I'm really enjoying it, but it also sort of makes me want to garden (!), so I've put it down for a month or two. I thought maybe if I read it closer to a possible planting season, I might actually plant. So far, though, I really really like it.

Cathy (cathepsut) This is about shopping locally and sustainability, right? Works well with my paleo diet book... ;-)

message 5: by Antof9 (new) - added it

Antof9 Yes and yes! You're right :) in fact, I was just thinking I need to pick it back up!

message 6: by Cathy (cathepsut) (last edited May 10, 2011 03:14PM) (new)

Cathy (cathepsut) Well, gardening season has started, right? Time to plant all those herbs and salads... :-)

message 7: by Antof9 (new) - added it

Antof9 Exactly - in Denver, the good gardeners always say not to plant until Mother's Day (US), so now that yesterday is over, we can plant at will :)

I'm planning to get some stuff this afternoon to go with the seeds I already have. EXCITING!

Cathy (cathepsut) Plant basil! It smells great and tastes even better. And some citronella to keep mosquitos away... :-)

message 9: by Antof9 (new) - added it

Antof9 Yes! Basil is on my herbs list - I already have the seeds :) Fortunately for us, we don't have mosquitoes in Colorado (I got a lifetime of bites when I lived in North Dakota, though)!
