    But, but... where are you finding Peppercress? Happy Boy pulled up all their plants this spring and I have yet to find a replacement!?

    Oh no - all that time I spent adding in '[source]' links to my posts. I guess I didn't make it clear enough. Hmm - must try harder = more work. I always get my peppercress from Heirloom Organics at the FB saturday FM market and it's usually excellent, but this week it was a bit too wilted for my liking. It's got the flavor but not looking so good.

    Definitely not! You're helping give me ideas for my eating this month. Keep it up! Keep it up! :-) I particularly love your Source links.

    Only in the sense that I am green with envy over the wealth of local options you have in the Bay area! But I love your detailed reports.

    I like it, but I wanted more details about the potluck - and photos!

    Wow - My readers are so demanding ;) I am going to have to start charging a subscription. Inside Contigo was dark - candle-lit and not suitable for taking decent photographs. And I wouldn't have anyway - there was barely enough time to socialize. Additionally - I have committed to writing down everything I consuume this month, and as I am finding out it takes so long, esecially if I include links to the farmers/sources, that I have little time for anything else. Especially since work has exploded in the background. Sorry Alice - and all, I am letting you down. I guess I can't please all the people all the time.
