Eat l10n

l10n is geek shorthand for localization, which is what the Eat Local movement is all about (…except in the context of food and not software).

Anyway, you better fill up the tank and hit the farmer’s markets early this week: the local-vores will be swarming! Well, maybe not those particular vores, unless you’re within 100 miles of the bay area.

Yep, today marks the beginning of the month-long 2007 Eat Local Challenge. Apparently it’s the third year in a row. Depending on your level of commitment, you can participate in many different ways and at many different levels of effort; everything from “take photos of local food”, to “Can, freeze, or dehydrate your local summer bounty”.

First on my agenda is roasting 10 lbs of San Marzano tomatoes, just procured from my farm around the corner as part of my CSA share.
