Interesting stuff you want to know

It's been a big week for the South Jersey Locavore blog. I started a Twitter account (@SJLocavore), contacted several restaurants that support local foods that are interested in being featured here, and saw the readership increase 10x over the week. Thank you to everyone who has read, made comments, and re-tweeted the posts on Twitter. I feel like I made the right decision in starting this blog, and because of the positive response it's gotten so far, I'm dreaming big for its future.

Over on A Little Greener Every Day, one of my other blogs, there's a list today of 10 outdoor places to take the kids that Tina Yerkes, whose job it is to promote the SJ region, kindly put together. If you're trying to figure out what to do with your kids next week when they are off school, check it out.

I thought I'd leave you with a few links to things on the web that I ran across this week that are of interest to locavores. Happy weekend reading.

The Food Renegade blog has a guest post by farmer Joel Stalin on why local food is more expensive.
The Atlantic has a piece on Love, Local Food, and Canned Peaches. Did you know that Yale supports local, sustainable food?
On Eat.Drink.Better my friend Derek Markheim debunks 5 myths about the food safety act (hr 875) that has everyone concerned about the future of small and organic farmers.

Enjoy your weekend, don't eat too much candy, and I'll see you Monday!
