263: Random thoughts.


Do you know there are less than 100 days until Christmas? Just a random tidbit of information. Christmas has nothing to do with the weeds growing in my yard. Except that by the time Christmas rolls around they will all be dead and I won't feel so bad about the state of my garden.

I'm grateful that weeds are pretty sometimes.

Are those black things seeds?

So pretty. I'm getting the Christmas spirit, too!

That's a weed? love the colors of it.

I think those are seeds.

Hey Shauna - Sorry for taking so long, but I'm finally following up on your question about Mattawoman Creek Farms using plastic to transport their CSA subscriptions. I replied on the blog but figured you probably wouldn't be going back to that post looking for the response, so here it is:
"Sorry for the delay, but I did finally follow up with the farm owner about the plastic bags. He explained how some of the alternatives, like cardboard boxes, ended up being more wasteful because they fell apart after a few uses. He said the plastic bags are also better from a food safety perspective. Also, he recommends subscribers reuse the bags as trash can liners. Hope that helps!"
