First! Our porch is now the lucky home of several new plants. Edible ones. I figure if I can't have a garden in the ground, I'll have a garden in containers! We have three different lettuces, two strawberry plants (from which we ate our first home-grown strawberry today), mint, rosemary, arugula, yellow bell pepper, cucumber, and cherry tomato. My porch is a very, very happy place now.

Better pictures to come, I promise. I might even load pictures from my actual camera, rather than my poor quality phone camera.
Second! While the new lovely edibles are busy photosynthesizing, growing, cellularly respiring, etc., we have found some new sources for fresh, ethical, more local, real food. This really awesome place is our new favorite place for produce! So hard to find a decent farm in the middle of sprawling Pinellas county, but here one is! And look at what we got!
|That's right, fresh, hand-picked broccoli, zucchini, yellow squash, collard greens, strawberries and a tomato!|
Fourth! I'm 90% sure at this point that I am going to sell my car. I'm really tired of driving around a planet-killing zombie machine. I'd much rather ride a bicycle. I'm in the process of researching bikes and such, and trying to figure out the right timing (and that whole money thing) to do it.
I would post beautiful pictures of us at Indian Rocks Beach the other day, but the camera is completely dead. I need to charge it, and then I'll post pictures.
Love to you.
