"Love of nature and appreciation of the beauties of the landscape were foreign to the rural population. The inhabitants of the cities brought them to the countryside."
Ludwig von Mises
This is outrageous. The USDA says we are not entitled to choose our own food.
At a time when we need more small farmers the corporate ag folks are criminalizing it.

Spring garden catalogs have begun to arrive.
Winter has not yet begun to deliver its full measure of icy winds and snowy goodness and the US postal service is bringing me the promise of spring.
I love it.
There is always a warm feeling that builds up inside me as I expectantly open the mailbox and find the latest offerings from those purveyors of nature's beauty, seed and plant sellers.
This is truly one of those surprise gifts that I never grow tired of receiving.
I hope you all get the chance to feel this joy as well.
With so many wonderful blogs I enjoy I could not possibly list them all here. Please check them out here.
