  • Did you know that it would take 1.9 United States of Americas a year to develop enough resources for one United States of America?  We consume more than we produce. When we reach that point where we are consuming more than we produce or regenerate we have reached “Overshoot Day.”  In 2...

  • A new level has been reached at the Homer Farmers’ Market.  I know it’s hard to believe, but the Market can get even better. Every week I keep a tally of the veggies coming in, so that we can track the seasonality of the produce at the Market. How early can we get carrots? How late can we h...

  • Tomatoes have started showing up at the Homer Farmers’ Market.  Even some artichokes and pumpkin. The summer is in full swing. But vegetables aren’t the only aspect of diversity at the Market.   The craft vendors never cease to impress me with their skill and diversity. Last weekend I ...

  • I just spent a week in a class where the food was provided. Three square meals a day. Just imagine. No planning, no prep, no shopping. Just sitting down to an immaculately prepared meal.
