The Scoop

Landship Foods is inspired by the conviction that growing and eating healthy food is one of the most important things we can do for both ourselves and the broader communities of which we are a part. The name comes from the language of pre-industrial Europe. Before the enclosure movement and the associated rise in notions of private property swept England, the suffix “-ship” (as in "relationship," or "friendship") referred to an object or an abstraction with collective duties and mutual rights. Thus, the term “landship” suggests that land was an entity through which humans were joined to each other by a set of rights and responsibilities. I advocate for a revival of this awareness.

Back-to-School Special

Back in Georgia, my classes start today for the semester. Luckily, my roommate tended the garden with care while I was gone and for the past few days I have been pickling okra and peppers and eating fresh tomatoes!

And there's still more coming in from the garden:

A bountiful garden makes late summer in Georgia much more enjoyable than it would be otherwise!

If you're going to San Francisco...

One of my best friends came through the Gulch for the 85th reunion (possibly because I told him we would be roasting a whole hog...) I think this photo is from the morning after the all-night roast, and as he was on his way to San Francisco the sunflowers seemed a righteous prop!

Final Harvest

Tomorrow marks the end of my sojourn in New Mexico. The past few years I have come out for the entire summer, but this year was shortened due to schoolwork. It was still quite enjoyable though. Our final harvest today brought a lot of veggies into the kitchen. For dinner we had the chickens we raised here throughout the summer stuffed with our root vegetables and served with a fresh-from-the-garden salad.

Many hands make light work...
