    Challenge is going great. More on saving water and energy. We have an instant hot water unit at our cabin and it still takes a minute to get hot water from one end of the house to the other. We have a container in the shower to catch the water until it gets hot and then use that water for animals or filling the toilet tank.
  • Reflection Question
    Food Meet My Local Farmers
    When you know who produces your food, you are connecting personally to your complex regional food system. What are the advantages of knowing who produces your food and where it comes from? Do you think this might enable someone to advocate for a better quality of life for those who produce their food, both near and far?

    I think knowing where your food comes from and what is going into it is great.
    I believe it creates the chance to make wiser choices.

    Went to our cabin and cut fire wood with my husband over the weekend. That's a workout.
  • Reflection Question
    Food Plant an Herb Garden
    Consider the ways you can garden: a plot of land? a patio container? hanging basket? windowsill gardens? What would work best for your living situation and lifestyle?

    A plot of land in our side yard works best.
  • Reflection Question
    Waste Use Reusable Bags
    What do you do if you find yourself in the situation of needing a bag for items but don't have a reuseable one with you? Carry things out in your hands? In a cart? Accept a disposable one? If you find yourself in this position often, what system could you put in place to try to establish this a successful habit?

    I will take my items out in the cart and then load them into the car.
    I have started putting my reuseable bags in my car and when I am heading to the store I put them on the seat with my purse so I don't forget to take them in.

    My neighbors have bees and I am learning what kind of plants and flowers they like.
