  1. Great blog! As aspiring "locovores" in the Pacific Northwest, we appreciate all of your information and links! Our garden gets a little bigger each year...

  2. I knew oranges would have to be listed for Florida!

  3. There is so much to learn! The learning will probably never stop. Atleast let's hope so. Thanks for stopping by, Susan! (Where in the Pacific NW? I used to live on the Kitsap Peninsula in WA.)



I'm new at all of this, and would love to hear any of your comments, questions or suggestions. Thank you for coming by!
