Another Good Reason to Support Local Farmers…

It’s easier than having to grow it all yourself.

Beth Poitier has nice post up at UNH’s Discover(ing) Sustainability blog.  She’s thankful that the Seacoast’s farmers have had more success with their farms than she has had with her garden.  And she’s right.  The growers that we get our food from have a lot more training and experience than your average backyard gardener.  They’re also growing food for a living so they have a bit more invested in ensuring that things go well and that their crops make it to market.  So the next time you look in your backyard and the pickings look a little slim remember that they are plenty of farmers’ markets and farm stands nearby to bail you out and the growing season isn’t over yet.
