No, it doesn't have anything to do with the fourth of July... I found this very cool blog and on it was a challenge to do one thing every day to create food independence. Each day you: Plant something, Harvest something, Preserve something, Prep something, Cook something, Reduce waste, Manage your reserves and Work on your local food systems. I like this challenge because it gives me some guidelines...I find that the days can slip by and I don't do anything.
Here is the link to the challenge. Anyone up for doing it with me?
