I was pleased to get so many nice e-mails from those of you who planned on stopping by your co-op or making an online donation to help our organic farmers out! Way to go to Kathryn for getting my contest rolling with my first official entry.
The latest report from Harmony Valley reported a loss of $800,000 at their farm alone. The local news reported as of Friday that Sow the Seeds has raised about $10,000 so far for flood relief. It’s a great start but just a drop in the bucket towards what is needed. Take a few minutes to watch this video that I came across today. It sums it up pretty well. Then, take a few minutes to donate and enter here to win some yarn!
On the knitting front, I purchased this pattern today. But, I have still have my Leaf cardigan to contend with; it’s too tight in the armpits and now I’m stuck.

Geez – I had promised to post something on my blog and completely lost my mind. I’m so sorry – I have it mentioned here now:
Oh no – any thoughts on how to fix it??
Juliet is such a cute little top!
This spring Renee (agoodyarn.blogspot.com) and I purchased a full share with Featherstone Farms in Rushford, MN. They’ve been sending updates with rotted crops, mold on X andy Y, but unbelievably 2 weeks after the mega storm they’re back to delivering weekly boxes to us. I’m completely astounded at how much of the farm they were able to recover. I expected no further deliveries for the season.
Your awareness of others is inspiring. keep up the great work.
Uhg, I didn’t even think about the poor organic farmers! I will have to stop by my coop. Thanks for the reminder.
