Why I'm Getting Dirty:  I've loved playing in the dirt since I was a little kid - now I just have a real reason to do it. I love all the challenges of trying to live a green life in the city, getting our food either from the garden or the local farmer's market, and trying to find uses for everything instead of throwing things away.

    I appreciate your perspective. I also enjoy challenging myself to live a life as green as possible. Wouldn't it be nice if we could grow outside all year? Although, that would eliminate the excitement of the new season approaching. Do you have a farmer's market that's open all year?
