Recently the Food and Drug Administration sent out a PSA on the outbreak of Listeria in organic frozen vegetables. Since I am concerned with food safety matters, I found the list of contaminated foods and sent it to my family and friends.
They were appalled that the United States government has not done an adequate job of overseeing the way our food is being processed.
When talking to my family and friends about the Listeria outbreak, they all suggested we start growing our own food.
I plan on starting my garden in the fall and beginning with growing Lettuce and adding more food along the way. If you do not have the space to start your own garden, you can join a community garden.
If you have some space, I highly suggest starting your own garden. Check out my “Garden #plantlife” board on Pinterest for gardening tips.
What stores do you buy your produce at? What are your thoughts on eating local foods?
