In my produce box this week: Sugarloaf Borca Chicory - Good Food Easy German Butterball Potatoes - Juniper Jungle Farm Collards - Organic Redneck Carrots, Brussles Sprouts, - Cinco Estrellas Empire Apple - Columbia Gorge Organics Green D'Anjou Pear - Mt. Hood Organics

I'm going to be riding my bike more, but even though it has been very mild, it isn't quite warm enough to ride outdoors yet. I've always admired this wonderful building top in Portland. It is a lot longer, I just couldn't capture it.

Here's one of the farms that we are getting produce from:
