Hope you had a wonderful month of positive change. As for my changes, our garden is starting to grow! It is fun to watch and we cannot wait to dive in to it to eat. The first of our seeds that we saved from fruits and veggies we ate just sprouted. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my LifeFactory glass bottle bought at reuseit.com… never going back to stainless steel! I also love some of my newly added glass jars to our drinking glass collection. It is still hard to stay away from plastic food packaging, but the farmer’s market makes a big difference. The radon testing in our home is not yet determined… stay tuned. Every time I use my enviro friendly cleaning I feel good about what I am using (even if it takes a little extra elbow grease). “A Place at the Table” is an incredible documentary to better understand hunger in our country, and what we need to do to make things change (no small feat, but it can start with one person). Hope you enjoyed some of the re-runs!
