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.

Though not the official beginning of winter according to the "experts," I think winter began today here in Athens. Either way, the productive growing season is in the future and the past - not the present. There was a light, patchy frost last night and when I get home my weekend task is composting the summer crops. I was able to harvest lots of the peppers and the last of the okra before it was frost-bitten though.

Luckily my kale is pretty well established.

The one good thing about pulling out the tomatoes is that it means deer season is upon us!
