Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

Over the last few nights, we've streamed a couple of documentaries, first being Food Fight, and the second being Broken Limbs. The former is about the locavore movement (i.e. food from nearby, and fresh, rather than faraway and shipped; the local foods are usually tastier and have more nutrients than that shipped; the shipped is usually cheaper, and processed in some fashion); the latter is about the apple industry in Washington State, and how it's becoming less and less from small farmers. Both were interesting to watch. Since my wife grows a lot of produce for us in the backyard, you can't get any more local than that...
