Thanks everyone for contributing your answers!
I really enjoyed reading them this week.
and thanks to everyone who contributed to this week, and all the other weeks give aways.
It's been a lot of fun, and I'm so glad I decided to do it all month.

It's a really nice day here today.
It started out nice and sunny, and now the clouds are moving in...but I'm just glad it's above 55 degrees right now. Seriously. It feels very nice.

I've been reading animal, Mineral, Miracle by by Barbra Kingsolver these last couple of days.
I worked for a local grocery store chain, and a couple of others, when I lived in Portland, so I knew a lot about the importance of buying local, and having your own garden. But, reading this book had really started to make me want to work in my garden again.

Right now we'd be growing lettuce, herbs, onions and starting our beans...sigh.
I can't wait. We'll be home in time to plant our tomatoes, our peppers, strawberries, and some flowers...so that will be good. I so miss digging in the dirt and making dinner with the things right from our back yard. There is something just so rewarding about that.

We were fortunate enough to have an amazing farmers market here. I'd have to say it is one of the best farners markets I've ever been to. The prices were so great! Portland farmers markets tend to be pretty expensive...I'm not exactly sure why. Maybe it's because they know people will pay those prices, I'm not sure, but I will miss making out like bandits at the one here...

Well, we've got about 48 days to go until we hit the road. Yes. That's 48 days :)
