It was actually comforting to read about the slaughtering process on Polyface farm. (I wasn't thrilled at all about reading on the bleeding of the chickens - ugh). But, the meat industry is always so mysterious and the only things that come out of it are rumors of atrocities. I know this isn't typical to the way things are done, but I still felt satisfied (and even a little hopefull) reading it.

The idea of homogeny in farming and food production in this huge country is really bizarre. But something that we are so used to. Chicken is chicken. Eggs are eggs. I had never really thought about it before and I'm surprised that we have grown so accustomed to such ideas when the soil and the climate across the nation varies so greatly!

I just bought a book about potatoes...essentially an informative cookbook. But there are so many kinds of potatoes! It's hard to believe we only see 2 or 3 kinds in the stores. I bought red and purple carrots this summer...the options we're missing...
