Cherish a strawberry, browncoats

For me, the locally grown component has been window dressing for the healthier consumption aims. They help make eating more produce cool. When I go to a restaurant, mentioning locally grown suggests an elevated attention to detail I appreciate.

However, I wonder to what extent production can be decentralized. I know Missouri apples are mush not too long after the season, and I can’t imagine Midwest strawberries in the winter.

Even so, the browncoat locally grown loyalists have lost a successful and experienced officer, and the produce industry lost an ally.

Merrigan has said she does not oppose large-scale production.

I can imagine her, if thrown into some dystopian future, clasping a red strawberry and cherishing it.
