making lemonade out of lemons – Julia Child style.
Slowly…. slowly. Since life is getting in the way (darn public school germs, and broken freezer with 100+ lbs of meat inside, among other things), and I reached that point in the year that I started to resent my tomato plants, I took a little brain break. But today it’s fifty degrees outside, so I am going to plant my garlic and pull out my bean teepee and rake my leaves, dammit. Hold me accountable, please… just after I finish my breakfast.
One of the perks of all the summer travel I did was that I hung out in Huntington WV for a couple of days… and of course, I wrote about it.
…and in case you didn’t want to read it on the Food Revolution website, you can see it here too.
And if you haven’t seen what I wrote about the Month Without Monsanto challenge in October, take a peek. While I’m disappointed that Prop 37 didn’t pass in California, it came darn close, and awareness about GMOs has increased a lot as a result (check out the Cheerios Facebook protest, for example). It’s heartening to see more people start to question the corporate food model and want to know what’s really in their food. Makes me think that I’m not just shaking my fist at the sky for no reason.
