      We were invited to a friend’s for dinner last night. They live about 1,000 feet above us and have the most incredible garden.  

      We started with appetizers that included salmon that our host caught himself on a trip to Alaska and then smoked. Our dinner included grilled venison that he hunted right here on Maui. The vegetables - beets, carrots, lettuce, peppers and asparagus all came out of their garden just that afternoon. For dessert we had apple crisp - with apples from their trees. Then as we left, they sent us home with a package of smoked salmon, some bananas from their trees and then some of their home grown apples.

      I was in culinary heaven!

      When I lived in Washington State I had fruit trees and an incredible garden. I never ever bought lettuce or vegetables. I had friends who hunted and fished so we traded meats and produce. It was wonderful.

      There’s nothing in the world like feeding ourselves with food that fresh!
