Local bounty is all around us, with roots in our hearts
Maryland’s Buy Local Challenge makes the typically sultry last week of July one of my favorite times of the year.
For those of us who take eating locally to heart, it’s no challenge to eat one local delicacy each day from July 20 through 28. Peaches for breakfast, tomatoes and basil for lunch, corn and crab for dinner — plus watermelon for breakfast, lunch and dinner: What’s not to like about that menu? It’s delicious, and it’s convenient.
So convenient that some of it grows steps from my door.
