Hi Bill - my recommendation would be chard - it can take partial sun and produces all summer. Good luck!

Stop subsidizing corn - it would have all sorts of beneficial impacts, including raising the cost of soda. And then, if we still need a soda tax, I would consider it.

And yes, I drink soda (way too much, in fact).

Good post. I am working on reducing the amount of paper towels and napkins we use. We have been at it a couple of weeks. Although we are not perfect, it is surprising how easy it has been to reduce usage of paper products by about 80%. All we needed was lots of dishcloths and a commitment to change.

For the last couple of years, I have been reducing the amount of meat I eat, and for my vegetarian meals, I never use meat substitutes. They kind of gross me out for some reason - they seem so fake. Eating them would seem to be at odds with why I am trying to eat more vegetarian meals - to have more healthy, low processed foods.

If I never ate meat, I might give them a try, but at this point, don't see any need to.

Beautiful house - I love it!

I have been looking at those Mio tiles. Do they really help with noise bounce? According to the website, only the ones in your kitchen are "accoustic" tiles, but I love the ones in the media room. Do you think both work equally well?

I had never heard of Joseph Cornell before. His stuff is absolutely amazing! Thanks for sharing.

I like the idea, but there has to be a less expensive solution!

The timing on this post is perfect - my husband and I just made a commitment this weekend to significantly reduce (and hopeful eliminate) our paper towel use. I have already bought more cloth towels and made room for them in the kitchen. Now we just need to build a new habit. We did it with re-usable shopping bags, so I am sure we can do it with this.

My winter gardening consists of planning for the next year of gardening (or at least trying to - see my recent blog post: http://2greenacres.blogspot.com/2010/01/analysis-paralysis.html)

On warm days, I weed, prune, and take soil samples.

On a similar subject, I have put together a few gift lists for vegetable and native plant gardeners. Not all the gifts are under $25, but many are.

Here is a link to one list:
