I don't think this would work well in Washington State. But, what a ingenious thought especially for sunny low-economic areas. I wish I could talk someone into giving it a go.

Green Rabbits

Once in awhile I check to see what new books are in/on order for our library system. I noticed Peter Rabbit "The Green edition". I had to go searching because I had some inner worry that someone had changed the book. Come to find out it's the entire product line.

Interesting tidbit. And, yes I did know how interested she was in the environment and the Lake District.

It is a girl!!!

I made the doctor tell me three times. The third time he got a really good shot of her parts and gave me a nice scientific in detail description of what everything was and will be.

Ultrasound is coming..

So, tomorrow is the ultrasound. All my boys are coming, so I hope all is well in there. I just started worrying about what if there was bad news and my boys had to be there for it. Ugh.

Also, got my directions for the next appointment and my Gestational Diabetes test. My last pregnancy I had it and I had to fast for the 1 hour. I'm curious how it will go this time. I haven't been feeling so hot unless I keep my protein up. This means I've been eating cheese, cottage cheese, eggs, fish, and chicken. I've had red meat twice, but boy is it difficult. I'm terrified of mad cow disease. I'm normally a vegetarian, so it's a bit much some times. I definitely feel the dairy stuffiness that I grew up with. But, feeling better is worth it, even if I'm stuffy. I'm jealous of all those Vegan and Vegetarian moms.

I'm just a gypsy married to a displaced surfer boy

Being that it's still winter in Washington I'm craving a move to California. My poor Californian husband is molding something terrible. We are so sorry we left. For some reason it makes me feel better thinking about living in little spaces and enjoying some sun again. Come this summer I know we will feel better.

I look at other people's blogs and they are making so much of their lives. They are sharing all the sweet little things. You probably think I dress in black and cry my day away. I don't. I love my family. I'm happy with my life. I don't think it's a the grass is greener syndrome. I just enjoy the change & challenge.

Sharing the Harvest: A Guide to Community Supported Agriculture Sharing the Harvest: A Guide to Community Supported Agriculture by Elizabeth Henderson

My review

rating: 5 of 5 stars
I'm really enjoying this book so far. I just picked it up because I've been interested in CSA's the last few years. This book talks about the use of an account for CSA to allow those on foodstamps (which is now on a debit like card) to access CSA's. So, I guess I'll start searching for one that might possible accept my card. I would love to see some of my food money go somewhere better. The town we live in now is just not as supportive of an organic lifestyle.

View all my reviews.

An article to about being a CSA and how to accept food stamps/ebt cards.

As part of my search I found that a local group is trying to come up with some wise shopping alternatives to what is available at the moment. The Tacoma Food Coop is working on forming, but they have been working since 2006. Oh I hope there is a turn in the road soon for this. This area is definitely a low income area of Washington. Yet our housing prices are ridiculously high. I think growing and supporting our local farms is a movement for the people not just some luxury.
