Just returned from the Farmer’s Market where we did quite a bit of shopping…

The idea of being “sustainable” on locally grown and processed foods starts at the weekly Farmer’s Market and we got there about 1 and 1/2 hours before its closing for the day.

Elly wants to experiment with putting some fruit “up”… she’ll cook the apples and pears and I’ll haul out my Mason jars and can them – based on my pickling experience last year.

We also got to spread the word about the Friday night Sustainable Shepherdstown program about growing and eating locally.

We also bought a week’s worth of local meat and cheese… everything wild grass raised and organic.
