A Plentiful Perspective

Rhonda Joy Ashby's avatar Rhonda Joy Ashby

I was inspired for this piece while browsing a local farmers market. The memory of a lengthy search for a Michigan apple, came back to me. I was visiting my husband last fall in VA., where he was deployed with the U.S. Coast Guard. I was craving a Michigan apple! It took several attempts but when found, it was a taste of home! My mother grew up on a farm and my family dabbled in raising raspberries, strawberries and pumpkins, among other things. I grew up "eating local" and "in season." As a kid I took it for granted. There is nothing like a strawberry pie made from just-picked berries! Support the farmers who feed us and buy locally grown produce. You will taste the difference!
