Last month I made a little pledge with myself and thousands of readers to make serious efforts toward making my family and our home more eco-conscious and "green". I'm happy to report that we (I) have made some great strides in the emerald direction but, dudes (!) this is NOT easy.
I joined a CSA. We are signed up to get vegetables through the end of the year from a great local farm. I have made extensive use of the lettuce, asparagus, arugula, potatoes, carrots, chives and strawberries so far. I got two neighbors to join as well and we have taught each other new ways to eat the fresh delectables and we carpool to get the farm (woo hoo, saved gasoline!).
