Bag it ~ Reusable Style

By Torrie Sessions Don’t you just love it when you stumble across a product that can solve a problem that until then, nothing has been able to resolve? That euphoric, settling moment when you realize- the code has been cracked.  For months [who am I kidding?] years, I have tried to accomplish the “simple” task of bringing my own reusable bags to the market, and despite the fact that I had a wide array of bags sitting right in the back of my car, I could not seem to remember to bring them into the store… Read More →

Cheers to Your Health ~ Tropical Juice

DIY Summer Plans

By Estelle Hayes Have you ever made your own cheese? Can you mix a martini or muddle a mojito? How about make your own soap or compost your food scraps? Nope? Me neither. I’m thinking this summer is the perfect time to take on a few new challenges. Love Apple Farms is offering some amazing classes, none of which I can actually attend this month, but their schedule has inspired me to come up with a list of my own. And I’d love to know about any projects you plan to take on this summer. Read More →
