The 100 Foot Diet Challenge.


I've decided to take on the 100 foot diet challenge - make one meal a week from as many homegrown products as possible. (For more details, click on the poster.) Now, we do not grow our own wheat, nor do we have chickens or a dairy cow, so there are limits to what we can cook solely from our backyard. But as long as the challenge is "as much as possible," I think we can do it. And as Rebecca points out, we definitely won't have to worry about scurvy. Not that scurvy is a major killer of land-lubbin' vegetarians.

Also, I love the poster! Garden propaganda is so cool!

Anyway, by late-summer, this'll be a piece of cake - by then, we'll feel guilty if we eat a single tomato- or zucchini-free meal. The fun, challenging part is right now, when it's slim pickin' out there. Kale and chard with lemon and chervil, anyone?
