What I liked about this book I feel like both of the authors but particularly Alisa were able to capture the sense of wonder that I have felt about discovering where food comes from and feeling so much closer to it when you know the source I was never particularly interested in food or where it came from until my husband became a farmer but now that I regularly and for some meals exclusively eat food came from a farm 20 miles away and was picked that very afternoon by Kurt s own hands eating is a whole new experience I loved that this book was able to put into words those feelings that I have had since we have been fortunate enough to start eating mostly locallyWhat I didn t like about this book first of all there was nothing raucous about it That part of the subtitle is totally misleading Parts of the book alternated between dry history lessons and scolding sessions about how we are wasting the earth s resources Also I don t think that the authors uite realize that for a lot of people eating locally just isn t in the budget or they don t have access to it It would certainly be nice if everyone could eat locally grown vegetables every day but that just isn t an option for a lot of people It made me curious how they two writers could afford to eat so well on their incomes Graeco Egyptian Magick regularly and for some meals exclusively eat food came from a farm 20 miles away and was picked that very afternoon by Kurt s own hands eating is a whole new experience I loved that this book was able to put into words those feelings that I have had since we have been fortunate enough to start eating mostly locallyWhat I didn t like about this book first of all there was nothing Slave Again Whispers of Refuge #2 resources Also I don t think that the authors uite The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Traitor to the Nation, Volume 1: The Pox Party realize that for a lot of people eating locally just isn t in the budget or they don t have access to it It would certainly be nice if everyone could eat locally grown vegetables every day but that just isn t an option for a lot of people It made me curious how they two writers could afford to eat so well on their incomes

This was similar in many ways to Kingsolver s Animal Vegetable Miracle in that it is a year long experiment in eating only local foods Kingsolver is a much better writer and I enjoyed reading her book Plenty did however supply what I thought was lacking in the other book realism Plenty documents the difficulties in trying to eat locally struggling to live without wheatflour trying to store potatoes in an urban apartment staying within a budgettheir first dinner cost over 100 and the strain that foragingpreservingcanning placed on their relationship On the plus side their hundred mile radius overlaps on mine so should I choose to undertake this experiment I ve got some great resources to help me I think both books make the point that local eating is not very practical I mean the authors really have to go out of their way and work for it you know They both feel strongly that it is worth the time and effort and they make sacrifices accordingly Both books speak of being connected to the environment to the community to one s own body and its needs and even better connections to their families I loved the salty ending and how they found solutions to all of the major challenges they faced
