Of gardens, a food bank, and school supplies

Had a question about Idaho locations on my previous post, and my husband answered it in the comment column. His mention of Malad reminded me of how fun it is to live in Idaho....

Saw this article and thought that there might be other people who would be interested in reading about how some cities are planting gardens any and everywhere they can. I'm kind of jealous of those people who are now allowed to have hens (but no roosters) out back, as the linked article mentions....

In Boise, the Hawks are helping out the food bank-- details here. If you can stock up so that you won't need help from the food bank, or so that you can have enough for yourselves in an emergency, as well as enough to help others, you will be in a pretty good situation. If you already need help, I hope that things improve for you soon.

Don't forget to stock up on school supplies--they're awfully inexpensive at the moment, and would come in handy for communication and entertainment in case of emergency situations. Going out soon to shop for school supplies--hope that there will be some left....

Well, that's about it at the moment. Raspberries are ready and I'm glad they're producing so well this year. Corn's getting taller, but lacking that height that I always hope for....hope everyone continues to have a great summer!

Good post Marie. You never know pencils and paper might become the new form of communication without electricity.

MatthiasJ--Good point. Hope not exclusively,(although they are still a good alternative anytime) but prepare for the worst...thanks for your comment!
