Since I pitch you I thought I better put my money where my mouth is (like a good PR person) and read your blog and leave a comment! Also, maybe I'm showing my age but I never even knew WIllie K and Amy H performed together to begin with. :)

These were good tips -- especially carrying around a plastic bag for your trash. I would also add bringing your napkins because Japanese napkins were not enough for me and my dirtiness. :) PS. Can I come on your February trip. Please? Pretty please?

I can't believe you guys went to a soil and tractor museum. That is so awesome. Also, if you are pen pals with the farms you visited can you ask them how they get their plants to be so green and how they keep the bugs away? I wish my plants looked like that!

A skewer is an interesting sabotage. It seems more like that would be an advantage to help people eat their food.
