  1. Hello Emily,

    The veggies look delicious, and so good for us!! Enjoy a lovely Sunday and a beautiful coming week.



  2. Great photos! I love the dichotomy. Here in Madison, the Willy St. Co-op is sponsoring a local food challenge with all kinds of great help for us all to try a step toward a more local food paradigm.

  3. I don't know if anyone else has noticed but the cost of "regular" food is pretty near the cost of organic now. For me its a no brainer, go organic!
