A couple of days ago we harvested the last of our carrots and prepped our raised bed gardens for the long winter ahead. This November marked the end of our second year of serious gardening and we continue to be thrilled and humbled by this endeavor.
On a trip to the Atlanta area in March, I was able to pick up two truly excellent cookbooks from two Atlanta based chefs that I have gotten to know a little bit over the past couple of years: Asha Gomez’s My Two Souths and Steven Satterfield’s Root to Leaf. (Go buy them both now…you won’t regret it!)
Note: I wrote this piece in June 2013 and have never shared it before. I guess I was waiting for the right space and Orange Door SC has supplied that! I have since witnessed many more animal slaughters, and it is really interesting to read something that I wrote after my first experience with it.
“Some thing is going to die today.”
Looking past the man saying these words, about 50 yards over his left shoulder, my eyes are fixed on another person.
