On the Move Again

After another month's exile in the Land of Flat, and, immediately upon my return to Tucson, a two week long inexplicable back injury during which I could not rotate an eyeball without involuntarily crying out in pain, it turns out I remember enough about riding to take Li'l Burro out to lift his head high in the air and sniff the sweet acacia wafting through the spring desert air, and to investigate some cheap eats.

How nice of the MoM folks to let Li'l Burro rest amongst the tomatoes after our little jaunt through the desert.

Market on the Move is not cool in a organic, locavore sort of way, but it is supersonically cool in a reduction of food waste sort of way.  If you've not heard just how much perfectly good food is thrown away in the US and around the world, not to mention how much land and resources are used to grow that very same food, prepare to be horrified.  Market on the Move "rescues" excess or imperfect produce from produce brokers that would normally end up in a landfill, and makes it available to the public.  Sixty pounds for ten bucks!  Give some to the less fortunate in your neighborhood, or stock your own pantry.

Tomorrow: flight lesson! You do know I'm learning to fly, right?  *sigh*  There's so much I haven't told you...

Market on the Move is a great idea! Wish we had something like it here in Florida...the land of flat...also the land of bad tomatoes. Hope to see you one of these days in FL.
