locally grown

Pugs are usually locally grown and harvested during the spring season. 2014 marks the highest crop yield of the decade, with a reported number of 133,870 pugs harvested during the year.

No, I don’t want a Starbucks mug! I need a mug that tells people ‘I’m 100% locally grown’.

This post isn’t very relevant to what I typically talk about, but something I feel strongly about is the welfare of the small guys. And after Hurricane Irene, a lot of these people’s livelihoods were entire wiped out.

Dozens of farms from my hometown and surrounding areas were completely destroyed from the flooding, and are still flooded. I know you New Yorkers might not think this pertains to you, but I know you all enjoy your tasty organic produce from the local supermarkets. Well, a lot of those veggies come from my neck of the woods, much of the produce you all find at the Union Square Market comes from the Black Dirt Region. These farmers need your help now. So take your time, visit their website Warwick Farm Aid, and see if there is anything you can do to help out these people and their families.

And yes, those are all onions floating. Every single harvest was destroyed.
