Greens From the Garden...

Some guy out on Ford Chapel Road plants this little patch of greens each year and when they are ready he puts up this sign. Sometimes if they are not ready he puts of a sign that says "Not Ready Yet."

I usually run a photo each green growing season when the guy puts up the sign. It might lead some to think we live off the land down here in the south just laying about and gathering food as we need. It does bring to mind what a friend in L.A. remarked to me one time as I described catching large amounts of catfish at the lake a few miles from my home. It seemed to him that I was able to just live off the land  and he thought it might become a necessity for him since some one he did not like had just been elected President of the United States.

Little did he know that it takes the carbon footprint of a Yamaha outboard motor and a Ford pickup to haul those cats to the fryer. It usually takes making a little carbon footprint for me to get some greens since I pass this sign but I don't stop, pick and prepare. Instead I drive over to Dean's which is a blue plate lunch bar kind of place in Huntington Texas. I eat my greens there.  

So as it goes no one who was not living off the land already has had to start. I don't really know much about carbon footprints but I do know that gas is cheaper than it has been in a while and it's due to government investments made 30 years ago in the science of drilling. I do know that there are nice people in the world who give away free greens and that the blues singer Corey Harris has a wonderful cd release called "Greens From the Garden."     Posted by Picasa
