Green your food Tip # 2

Here's another Green Your Food Tip: connect with other people who grow food. Your neighbors, friends, church members, anyone with any type of garden. Give away your extras, and offer help if it's needed. For example, when we heard that someone in our church had 200 blueberry bushes that needed to be picked before the bears came and ate them all, we offered our labor for the price of the blueberries:) Seriously, you'd be suprised how many gardeners are willing to swap and share! Get connected to your local community. Here's some pics of our blueberry adventure:

P.S. Look at my tomato I harvested from the garden yesterday! Yum!

Hi I thought I would drop by and ask you a question by way of comment. I would send you a personal email but you don't have it posted.

I was one of the winners from the bloggy giveaways you participated in April.

But I never recieved the giveaway prize, the shaklee giftbasket.

I just thought I would let you know. I planned on letting you know sooner but It slipped my mind and I was hoping you would send it eventually. Maybe you did send it but it got sent to the wrong place I am not sure, maybe you could let me know...

Those are wonderful photos! We've picked and frozen heaps of blueberries. It's such delicious, healthy, local fun!

Over at we’re gathering momentum for our Thrifty Green Thursday blog carnival. Any blogger can get a piece of the action by posting a comment on our “Thrifty Green Thursday” post. Just write a Thursday post on a simple way that families can save money while going green. Then comment on our blog including your thrifty green topic and include a link back to us in your post. We hope you’ll join us next Thursday (and every Thursday thereafter) with your own thrifty green tips! For more information, check out the link below.

I just wanted to say thanks for your sweet comment on the blog posting about my husband. It was so kind of you to stop by and lend your support.
We are doing well and have even had a video conference already - kind of fun!
Take Care!
