I couldn't agree more Ralph.  It's so smart on so many levels.  Many people don't realize what is in our food these days... From pesticides to hormones, steroids and ecoli.  The initiative is worthy without that health concern being the case; it just makes it that much more important to act upon.

I've been buying local every week at our local farmer's market.  The Timonium Farmer's Market is comprised only of local farmers from Baltimore County.  I started as soon as the market opened in June and my family has been saying how much better the produce tastes.  Last night we had crab pasta salad (local crabs), corn on the cob, sliced tomatoes, sliced cucumbers all from Albright Farms in Phoenix, MD.  It was very yummy.

This is a very nice challenge Steve. I did it but I didn't "buy" local. I ate fresh vegetables and fruits from my own garden every day.
