Check out my latest post at The Green Phone Booth: In Season.
(Do other bloggers have personal favorite posts? This article is in my top ten favorites of all the articles I've written over the past year.)
"Pumpkin season!" we shout, spotting the sea of pumpkins at the far end of the farmers market.
My boys dash up and down each row, fingers pointing excitedly. "Look at this one! Oooh, this one is so big. Can we get this one?"
We load a hefty white pumpkin into the stroller basket - picturing the grinning ghost we'll carve into its side - then toss in a couple pie pumpkins for good measure.
And elsewhere on the Internet:
:: Greenhab hosts this month's APLS Carnival on "proselytizing green." Very cool topic.
:: Jaime from Green Resolutions guest posts at The Green Phone Booth to share a list of lessons she learned from her first garden.
:: The New York Times reports that zero waste is moving into the mainstream.
:: Also from the New York Times, a study from the National Academy of Sciences shows that "burning fossil fuels costs the United States about $120 billion a year in health costs."
:: An article from Grist asks, "So what if global warming is a hoax?" My sentiments exactly.
:: Last week, Carrie from It's Frugal Being Green mentioned on her weekly meal plan post, "I’m indulging in more fall flavors this week (might be my favorite food season)." That got me thinking...What's my favorite food season? I think probably early summer for strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, cherries, and corn. What's your favorite food season?
