Judy Bloom loves to support sustainable and handmade -
You can browse an array of handmade goodness on etsy.com -
One of my fav. sellers is PetalMix!
PetalMix is based in Northern California and displays quality products and unique color/pattern combinations. Part Japanese/English, PetalMix fell in love with kanzashi when viewing photographs of Maiko and their traditional garments.
Be sure to check out the full rainbow of colors and styles at the full shop, PetalMix.

I enjoyed a lot of "Sweet Million" small, cherry-like tomatoes and was impressed with the harvest. My late autumn "Better Boy" tomato plant has yet to produce more than 2 ripe tomatoes but I have about 20 large ones waiting on the vine...
I think next year I would like to add more yellow-pear tomatoe plants as well as a few more eggplants - Ah well, always something to do :)
Happy gardening -
