Got eggs?

Earlier this week I attended a local garden club meeting at which the speaker discussed the pros (and cons) of raising chickens in one's backyard. I've toyed with the idea, but will defer it for when I'm older because of the time commitment involved.

The photo above is literally worth a thousand words to show how food production and distribution has increasingly become a corporate venture. It's a mind-boggling image when one considers that the product depicted is essentially a perishable commodity.
