Food, Community And All Things Sustainable

So tell me...........

Do you know what these items have in common in relation to the State of Wisconsin?

Tomatoes, potatoes, basil, thyme, peppers, cows, eggplant. Got an answer yet? Well, then, let's add to the list:

Oregano, brussel sprouts, cabbage, okra. Got the answer, or need more hints. Here's a few more:

Thai eggplant, thai peppers, lemongrass. Give up? I'll tell you what they have in common.

They are not from here. They came here with the folks who migrated here. And aren't we glad for it? Just think of all the good local foods we have because of it. Local eating is not boring eating!

I'm enjoying my own frozen and canned tomatoes, and lemongrass and peppers, but I'm sure looking forward to eating fresh in a few short months. How about you?
