How to Eat Local

Langley berry farmer, Rhonda Driediger on her customer’s enthusiasm: “When it’s winter people ask when the strawberries are coming. As soon as they’re out, they ask about raspberries. When they show up, everyone wants to know about blueberries.”
She’s right. We get excited. Slow it down. It’s over so damn fast that it’s crazy to hurry it. Just eat as much of everything as you can while it’s front of you. Until you can’t stand it any more. Imprint it on your brain and pull it out in November. Sigh a wistful sigh and wait.
That’s how you do local.
