And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair. ~ Kahlil Gibran

So I finally got around to checking out our local organic/locally grown food store. Yikes! I am in shock. Some of the items definitely looked do-able, the veggies and fruits in particular (perhaps because they are in season?), but for the most part everything in there was way out of my budget. I might have to do some checking into the local-ish farms and see what I can find there. I also want to get to the local farmer's market and check that out. Vegetarianism would cut a lot off our grocery bill, but DH is a confirmed carnivore. I would probably miss the occasional steak, too.

On the plus side, both my dad and bro are hunters. I have access to venison through them, which you KNOW has not been fed any hormones, antibiotics, or chemicals. Well, unless the deer was feeding in a non-organic corn field...but that is thinking too hard for me. I have been hoping to get DH to start hunting again (he hasn't been since he was a teen, I think). With his schedule, though, my hopes aren't very high. Maybe one of the Sprouts will become a mighty hunter and provide for me in my old age. I don't think it will be Big Sprout, though. She doesn't like the idea of killing anything. Little Sprout seems bloodthirsty enough at this point to keep the hope alive, though.
