Here are the rules - at least the rules I intend to follow.
All foods eaten for the time period mentioned must have been taken directly from their natural source. Food should be cultivated through hunting, fishing, farming, or foraging. You may start collecting at any time (now) and can preserve these foods in any way, using any equipment so long as you do not add any non-cultivated ingredients. Freezing, drying, dehydrating, etc are fine - you cannot salt goods unless you go and collect the salt yourself. You may travel any distance you like to collect. You may have domestic (farm) animals for eggs, milk, meat, etc. so long as you have them at least 90 days prior to Market Day.
Please make sure you are POSITIVE of the identification of the plants you are foraging for. There are numerous guide books available that will help with identification, go to the library and check them out. Don't poison yourself or your family!
Share this idea with whoever you'd like! If you think there is someone else who would be interested in joining up with us, share it with them. If you know someone interested in doing it remotely, share it with them too.
We will begin Thursday, July 22nd, with 'Market Day.' Everyone bring their cultivated goods to family dinner and we can barter with one another for a better variety of goods.
Friday, July 23rd morning will begin the actual eating of our harvest. This will extend to the following Thursday night, July 29th, where we will conclude with a family feast. Everyone is to bring a contribution to the feast made solely from their remaining stockpiles.
