Open tomorrow, Saturday 12-4

Hope to see you tomorrow, Saturday, from 12-4 pm!

We have carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, parsley, kale, collards, cooking greens, baby red romaine lettuce, olive oil, olives, fresh ground whole wheat flour (grown here!), as well as salves, lip balms, creams, tea blends and all the herbal stuff.

Bulk dried herbs we always have, and love to make custom tea blends. Most herbs are from Mountain Rose Herbs in Oregon, all organic, and some are grown here. It used to be the other way around, mostly grown here, but I just got in my stainless steel screening to dry the herbs on and need to make a new drying rack. I wasn’t satisfied before with the aluminum (yuck) or vinyl (contains lead) window screening that most people (including me before I thought about it) use. We really have to question everything, it seems, these days. But one thing at a time, then make a simple change. Live with it until it becomes habit, part of your world, then tackle another. It’s no help to anyone, the Earth, or yourself, to get overwhelmed!

By the way, did you see the Climate Reality Project yesterday? 24 hours of climate REALITY, from people all over the world, speaking live about what’s really happening weather and climate-wise, everywhere. Uncensored and live. I was glad a friend reminded us so we could watch for the last 2 hours, but you can view it here any time. Each hour seems to be similar, except the panel discussions about half-way through each. Al Gore’s speech was a great one, in English, easy. #24, the last one. Some (all?) others were translations of this, with additions here and there.

It’s time for us to take care of our Mother Earth, for without her, what will we have?

Shouldn’t this be a priority, above all else?

Priority above using electricity without thinking of what it means to be burning all that coal, or supporting those nuclear plants? Above driving around and shopping? Above all our ideas of what we “need” to keep our comfortable lives?

IDEAS: Consolidate trips, carpool. Hang your clothes to dry in the fresh air. Spring for one LED light bulb for your reading light or a commonly used light in your home.  Walk or ride a bike to visit a friend close-by. Buy food in bulk and don’t buy food in plastic packaging. If using your oven, also throw in some squash, or tomatoes and garlic, or shiitakes in butter, to roast for another meal – make more use out of the energy used. Make or buy a thermal cooker (uses 1/10 or less of the energy). Use less: less lights at night, no lights during the day if you can, …   I’m running out of ideas but I know there are more! Post a comment if you want with your ideas.

We can do this. We have to do this. Really, now. Beautiful things will happen.

Enjoy this lovely Autumn weather. Thanks for listening.
