We have created a silly culture of shipping produce thousands of miles to grocery stores. So genetics have been selected for long lasting perfection and size, taste has been substituted for looks. Those advertisers got into our heads and screwed everything up. The biggest brightest one should taste the best right!
I would love to see a cultural change where most food is grown local and organically. We have some great greenhouses here that provide local vegetables year round for dirt cheap prices. I have to admit I thought it was just hippy stuff when organic started popping up in grocery stores. It's hard to beat anything taste wise when it's out of someone's little garden

I remember you selling jams and the stories to go with them! I wish I had the capacity to grow enough to pump out some jams, but the little garden I did plant this year took a massive dump from the heat and my lack of vigilance. I am bummed about it, but watering every day in this heat is ridiculous at best. I have gotten a decent amount of tomatoes, but the pumpkins, squash, and watermelons just up and said "fuck this heat" lol.. and the strawberries? Fuget abou dit.
