 h1. Dear readers,

 As a child, food was at the center of my life. My parents were not foodies ("foodies" by name didn't exist in the 1970s), but they were earnest hunters and gatherers and farmers, and they involved us kids in their mission. 

 At various times, we kept a garden the size of a basketball court; tended bees; hunted, dressed, and butchered wild game; cured fish in a homemade smoker; ground wheat for flour to make bread; canned everything from applesauce to salmon; and foraged mushrooms (which we sautéed in butter and froze) or elderberries, chokecherries, huckleberries, and other edibles (dandelions!), which we made into wine, jelly, and syrup. 

 One year, we even raised pigs.

 What variety! We ate well. Happy birthday, Mom, and thanks for all the good food.
