cakeWell, it’s November, and almost exactly one year since I started blogging at Eat Close to Home. I started off by inventing National Local Food Month (NaLoFooMo) because I knew a lot of people participating in some variation of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). I was tired of feeling non-creative, surrounded as I was by all these folks with an Art and a Passion. Well, my Art and Passion are sustainable, healthy food…so I decided to write about that.

Now, nearly 50,000 visits later, I find I’m writing about more: gardening, my crazy carbon budget, recipes, and occasional editorializing. Thanks for visiting! I’m amazed that all of you are out there and find my ramblings interesting. 🙂
