progress. . . .<

Crystal, why not a recommendation for farmers' markets? We have markets
in low-income neighborhoods of Washington State with produce sales from
one-quarter to one million $$ during a 6 month season. I've no doubt that
this is true elsewhere.

Also, those sales directly benefit local farmers who are otherwise going
into commodity crop production or out of business to the tune of 20%
every decade.

I appreciate your emphasis on the production of healthful fruits and
veggies. Those 2 food groups are the only ones we consume at below the
recommended number of daily servings. Ours is a population suffering the
consequence of that malnutrition and low-income families suffer the most.
