displace: to take the place of; supplant
There are a lot of “key words” floating around in the media, like sustainable, natural, organic, ecological, etc. I want to introduce my own key word, and it isn’t a descriptive term, it is a verb. An action word, as my second grade daughter knows. Displace. The goal for this food is displacement. I hope that these veggies are taking the place of things you would otherwise buy at the traditional grocery store.
Ideally my visit to your home or workplace will displace a trip to the grocery store. The best way to combat the powerful marketing forces of the food giants is to stay out of the grocery store as much as possible. I include a list of foods in the bag to help with meal planning . Meal planning keeps us on track in the store.
I hope these healthy fruits and vegetables displace other foods in our diet that are less desirable. If a fresh, naturally ripened without ethylene gas, fungicide and pesticide free pear displaces a pastry or fast food breakfast, you are way ahead on the nutritional side, but there are other factors to consider as well. You have displaced an entire manufacturing, advertising, and transportation system with one simple action, replacing it with the power of sunshine, which is all it takes to grow these pears, and with the hand in hand cooperation of me and you. Two human beings exchanging resources face to face. This is an efficient and satisfying system that has been practiced through the ages, and I am glad to be a part of it, along with all of you.
So, when you unpack your bag, think displacement. The health of our bodies and pocketbooks will continue to improve as a result.

    Right on! I grew up eating from the garden. We had “garden dinners”; our entire meal came from the garden out the back door. A plate of fresh chilled vegetables, steamed corn, fried green tomatoes, squash, cabbage, zucchini, and we had watermelon or maybe cobbler or strawberries for desert. We didn’t know how good we had it.

    Nowadays, I live in suburbia and everthing I pull of the shelf is some form of reconstituted corn. Ack. Someday, I’ll have a patch of land to call my own again.

So, what do you think?
