PACT: Earth Day Every Day

May 21st, 2018

I received this email from PACT, an online organic clothing
store that I find good quality organic items @ reasonable prices.
I received this yesterday, but recycling is an ongoing process for
manyof us, so I believe the offer of money is still good. Scroll all
the way to the bottom about money for donating your clothes.

NOTE: This will bleed onto the right hand margin.

Spring Season Foods from Comestible Journal+

May 18th, 2018


Comestible Journal published  the list for foods in season. Here it is, reproduced with permission:




broccoli rabe

dandelion greens

fava beans






mustard greens

pea shoots

purple sprouting broccoli





spring onions




In typing this list, I realize that I have already purchased and eaten almost all of these items, except for nettles (an herbal plant), morels, purple broccoli, ramps*, and sunchokes (Jerusalem artichokes), so now my goal is to search for these and add them to my salads and main dishes.

This is an interesting challenge for me, since I love veggies and am curious about the ones I have not tried. I already posted a recipe using arugula (salad) Here is that link:  follow and just published asparagus (soup) Link follows:, and if you go to my Recipe Index.

*I thought I would explain what these three are and when I Googled the first word, an article from the Smithsonian came up with a photo (above). Here it is:

Morels are a kind of mushroom, ramps are called wild leeks, while fiddleheads are fronds of young ferns. Please go to the link for more information.

Happy Spring Shopping!
