    GAINING GROUND

    Thanks for all the great responses to our GAINING GROUND GIVEAWAY! We’ll be sending out a few signed copies of Forrest’s great book to some very lucky winners.  Rakdad provided the best, albeit unprintable, caption. Suffice to say it had something to do with cigs not stunting the growth of a part of the anatomy, represented by a certain domesticated fowl. 

    And if you are interested in a great summer read, consider heading over to  that big bookstore in the sky and purchase your own copy of Forrest Pritchard’s memoir Gaining Ground: A Story of Farmers Markets, Local Food, and Saving the Family Farm.  You can also follow Forrest on Twitter or on his blog at Smithmeadows.com
