    Who's Got The Homegrown?

    Apples don't cut it. Neither do mangoes. Nor do cherries or grapes or grapefruits or oranges. A bottled strawberry smoothie? Almost, but still not quite there.

    At the market today the strawberries looked absolutely ghastly. Those huge offerings of boxed, hydroponic delight wouldn't be coming home with me today. So what's a internet-savvy, strawberry-craving gal to do?

    Buy Appalachian Tailgate shows me where to find the strawberries from local farms, farmers and tailgate events by county and city.

    Buy Appalachia, celebrating fresh foods from Western North Carolina and East Tennessee. Indeed.
