Snow Goose Produce

I try to make my morning post, in general, something inspirational. I like to share something that will get your day off to the right start. Although I'm taking a break from the norm this week, I will say that I find today's post inspirational. It's not  quite the same kind of inspiration as I get from gazing into the Hoh Rainforest or reading my Bible, but it's good stuff. Let me introduce Snow Goose Produce.

If you love road side stands, farmers markets, and ice cream cones the size of your head (well, almost), you've just found a reason to head north of Seattle and into the farmland of rural Washington!
Wow! 1,000 feet above sea level! This is really only funny to those of us who live a mile high. 
I LOVE IT!


A true claim to fame: "immodest ice cream cones!" We saw several groups of precious old ladies come through the line. When you know you're getting on in years, why wouldn't you indulge in a 2,000 calorie treat?
I love when things are old because they are actually old, not just because it's cool to look old. Case in point, the hanging scale above.







It's not surprising that this little stand has their own brand of jams and jellies. Just take a look at the farmland pictured below...right across the street.

















You are not going home empty handed when you see victuals like these sitting in arms reach! Morels, freshly baked breads, organic herbs... it was a little closer to heaven here, I'm telling you!













And the piece de resistance: Dungeness crab, right out of the bay (remember Sequim and the Dungeness Bay from earlier this week?).
See? They're waving to you saying, "Take me home and eat me!"

Oh wait! You're not actually there. Oops... Sorry. But that's why you have to go! You can get one already cooked like these little fellas or...











pick out your favorites from the tank. That's what we did. So come back later for "how to kill a crab" (it's not gonna stick the knife in itself gals) and a true Pacific Northwest recipe for how to eat your buttery and delicious crustacean.

Mom Spot: Living Green Tip

I have one word for today:

compost
Anyone can do it, anywhere, any time of the year. Countertop composting may be your best option if you live in  a small place. But believe me, you want to get this stuff out of the house as soon as possible. Seriously.
That's why what you really need to know about is what goes in there and where to put it. I've read books on the subject (yes, actual entire books) and here's what it boils down to: Get yourself a good collection bin for inside and a realistic spot to put it outside (I use an old plastic ice cream container by my sink and then a standard bin with lid in my garden.)Stick with vegetable and fruit debris primarily along with egg shells and coffee grounds.Although coffee grounds can go directly to the dirt, all else needs time to decompose. Give it no more than 3 days inside and then get it where it needs to go!So where should it go? In a bin, in a ditch, or on a pile. You choose. (If you live in an apartment, don't think this i…

Psalm 16

This Psalm has been blessing me. I pray it will bless you too. Thanks to BibleGateway.com for making it so easy to share these beautiful words with you.16 Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge.
2 I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord;
I have no good apart from you.” 3 As for the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones,
in whom is all my delight. 4 The sorrows of those who run after another god shall multiply;
their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out
or take their names on my lips. 5 The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup;
you hold my lot.
6 The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. 7 I bless the Lord who gives me counsel;
in the night also my heart instructs me.
8 I have set the Lord always before me;
because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken. 9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my
