I'm back!

What a great trip we had! It's always good to be home, though, even when it means washing the sand and river goo out of everything you brought. The weather was perfect--warm and sunny during the day, and cold enough to make you love the campfire at night. Alex and Joanna from The Greater Green were there and they brought an organic watermelon from their garden that was the best I've ever tasted. We're hoping to get the CSA boxes going next year. That means yummy boxes of their tasty produce delivered to my door (and you can pick them up from Fly Right if you sign up ahead of time!). Hopefully we'll get the logistics worked out (Alex works in Chicagoland several days a week, so he can just bring 'em on over) and it will be a go! They're not certified organic yet, but since they cleared the land themselves, I'm pretty sure that pesticides have never touched that ground. They are certified "natural" for now. And their corn was awesome too! It sounds like they've been working really hard all Summer long. For now they've just been doing their local farmer's market. Joanna has been making beautiful jewelry from fair trade beads--I have a couple of her necklaces at the store. Alex made a couple of cool cedar soap decks for me from a fallen tree from his neighbor's property. There's one left for sale at the store--hurry in if you're interested. The craftsmanship is awesome, and it smells sooo good.
