Post-Lenten reflections on this year's experience:

Fewer greens this year, more goat. Discovered frozen veggies from Oregon (yay!) but they're not organic (boo!). Baker County honey is easy to come by. Oregon dairy products are prolific, Oregon milk is not. I'm a damn good little baker. It's hard to live without spices. The thyme in our back yard was a God-send. I'm still sad that there is no local producer for olive oil. Or sea salt. We consumed enough butter in 40 days that I'm scared for our heart health. We need to grow more herbs. And freeze more produce. And can more vegetables. And fully appreciate the bounty of summer.

See you next year.
