Last week I was able to go to San Antonio for a conference, and checked out Texas (in the smallest of terms) on the drive down from Southern Colorado. As I passed through many smalller communities and larger towns, it was amazing to see the farms and ranches that were starting to take advantage of the warm Spring weather.
Watching these farmers and ranchers, much like the producers who are in my own region of Colorado, is so inspiring. Many people do not understand our dependence upon agriculture for our food systems (as well as by preserving open spaces).
Highlights of the trip were seeing these thousands of acres be prepared for the 2010 season, meandering along the beautiful riverwalk in San Antonio, drinking Shiner Bock, and indulging in delcious food and fare from local producers at the Las Canarias restaurant.
