Just back from a quick spin in Central Florida to report that orange groves there are fast disappearing, as development is more profitable. ( Duh..) But what happens when we have no more land on which to grow food, and imports break the bank?
And, Kathy F, I have some chiles for you from Chimayo--will send, I swear!
p.s. When we were in Britain last winter, the best buy for hungry travelers was quiche...even at Harrod's.


No kidding about prices in the UK. I get over to England about every other year, and I've been amazed at how it has gone from being a reasonably priced getaway to as costly as New York. (Though I'd still rather be in England than NY.)


Sorry, that was cryptic. I meant I live in the UK, where prices are higher for pretty much everything. (Right now the exchange rate is killing those of us who get paid in dollars.) I just got a suitcase full of American groceries from my husband, who just returned from a visit to New Mexico though. Land of cheap chiles!


Can you expand on that, Kathy? Do you mean just that you share my opinion, or that this is your area of work/passion/concerted effort, or that your farm just got plowed under? Just curious to know how close to the battle you are.


Ha! Welcome to my world.


I don't think this will come as any surprise to those of us who have been saying for some years now that building housing developments on top of old, local farms and buying everything from South America was probably short-sighted.
