Local Produce

The 100 Mile Diet is getting a lot of press these days and rightfully so. Since Gabriola is only 8 miles long by 2 miles wide, I guess we're working on the 10 Mile Diet. These beautiful Walla Walla onions were grown right down the road and we bought them directly from the folks who grew them. Last night as we were finishing up our dinner, we realized that except for the butter, everything we'd just eaten had come from right here on the island.

Very nice still life. You are fortunate to live in such a wonderful climate that your meal was possible. Speaking of which, I've always been tickled by the fact that nearby Victoria has a contest for who has the most roses blooming at Christmas.

Thanks for your kind comment today. I've thought of doing a book about the St. Louis Arch (in my spare time). There are a few web sites you can use to self-publish photography books in small quantities. Apple has a good one. If anyone is actually interested in buying something like that, please let me know - it might motivate me. I'd have to take down the Empty Cart Award from my blog, though.

You are indeed fortunate. I am curious about the 10 Mile Diet. I need it! More info please.

Yummy, yummy. Walla wallas! My sons recently grilled fresh ones for a dinner party, and there were none left, none at all. Thanks for your help at Portland Oregon Daily Photo.
