I am almost finished with Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver.  She and her family ate locally grown foods for one year.  Most of the analysis of why one should eat local wasn't new to me--though still interesting to read because she articulated the reasons so beautifully.   The descriptions of her garden season by season was informative and entertaining, as each new crop had it's own particular chaos.   

Halfway through the book, I returned my library copy and bought my own (so I can lend it to others) AND ordered a vegetable box from a local farm.  Given that I live in such a food rich area, there is NO excuse to not be making more of an effort to eat local.  And after reading her book, I'm looking forward to eating more items in their proper season, getting back in touch with the natural cycle of food and getting further away from our fossil-fueled corporate economy.
