I couldn't agree more than I do with your last comment about sustainable (agri)culture making the most sense.

It causes me to wonder what we have really given up in this country by essentially losing our productive genes and abdicating our food production to a few mega-farms.

I can almost taste the quality of that small lot olive oil.

I wish that there were more small farmers here in Nebraska but this state is the heart of the big business farming. It breaks my heart to see where this state has gone with farming in just two generations. Here in the Urban area of the city that I live in, lawns are the biggest crop grown if you can really call it a crop. Chemical pestisides, fertilizers, and insecticides are a big market. Thriving lawn service companies are paid big bucks to chemically bathe the lawns only so the home owners can pay someone to mow the lawn once a week for it to look prestine in appearance. I'm weaning my yard off the chemicals and more toward the not so prestine but passable yard look.

Have a great Italian organic garden day.
