For years, I've substituted hair conditioner for shaving cream. It's one less bottle in the shower, I'm using it quite slowly anyway, and I avoid the rust rings! Plus, it makes my legs really soft.

Although we've only been renting our place for 10 months, the number one thing that has made it feel like home is the fact that we started a garden in the little back patio.

Holy bitterness, bfootnovelista! Sure, the casual meanderers and the stroller-toters are slower than we utility-shoppers (who get most of our week's groceries from the farmer's market), but I actually love that they're there. It reminds me that I'm part of a community of real people. In turn, I'm rooting for more people to saunter through and discover the market as a cool, relaxing place to shop-- in the hopes that they, too, will adopt a utility-shopping habit. If we're really going to change the way our society thinks about food and farmers, we have to be inclusive, generous, and patient in our farmer's markets.
