Hi Tina - it's funny, I just left a note for Gayleen to say I used to live out West in Henderson Valley, now seeing you are from kohi, reminds of when I lived there in 1982. Wow so much water under the bridge since then!

Enjoy the site. Check out the links in the Upper left of the Main page, some are quite helpful and informative.

And do invite some food grower and locavore friends to join you here.
