The time and energy this challenge takes is crazy. I've been doing... well, not so hot. I'd guess that I'm averaging about 50%. The one thing that is going well is that my garden is coming along splendidly. My lettuce looks... well, pretty much just like Jess's lettuce. I was harvesting a bunch yesterday and a couple things really struck me. First, I saw a tick and got really freaked out and I had to take some deep breaths. Then I saw a little tiny worm in among the harvest and lost my appetite. Suddenly, the clouds parted and all those Michael Pollan books I've read clicked into place. Food doesn't spontaneously generate in those big UNFI trucks. Food comes from dirt. Food was once part of a habitat, and in some places (like my garden) food still is habitat. Just ask my cat, she hangs out in the broccoli.
So my point today is that even though I'm not meeting my percentage goals for this challenge (yet), I have managed to make some progress on that other goal: awareness.
PS: I have tiny tiny tomatoes.
