Our family is attempting to eat all our own homegrown foods in July, August, and September. Our garden will be at its peak, the fruit will be harvested or ready to harvest, and the meat chickens will be ready to butcher. Anything we cannot provide for ourselves must be grown at a local source. Here is the moral conundrum: what to do about things like oil, coffee, lemon juice, baking powder, salt... lots of basic things that are not usually from our area. Does anyone have a recommendation of what to do in these cases? Has anyone else tried to be self-sufficient and run across this dilemma?
