By and large, we’re making good progress in our journey toward subsistence here at Longleaf Breeze. We got through a long hot summer with very little air conditioning, we’re generally pretty thoughtful about when and how we burn fossil fuels, and our food production is ramping back up as part of Veg Hill 2.0. But there are times when we can be so bad! Today’s podcast is our chance to let it all hang out and tell you about our decadent fossil fuel indulgences.
There are those seedless red grapes we get flown in from some exotic place, sometimes California, sometimes Chile. And just yesterday we picked up Chinese food on the way home. I couldn’t remember the name while were recording, so I’ll tell you here that our favorite Chinese restaurant in Tallassee is China Garden, 23440 Notasulga Road. We mustn’t forget Amanda’s driving 45 minutes to Loachapoka to play her dulcimer or to Birmingham to get a haircut. And I have my regular bush hogging adventures during the summer weed season. Easily our most profligate practice, though, is our habit of traveling by air to California to see our children and grandchild.
