When life gives you green tomatoes, you make chutney

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/photos/2011/oct/17/222993/ Wednesday's low is supposed to be 26 degrees. I feel like that's a pretty cruel way to end the true growing season in Kansas.

A liquid lunch (or breakfast) your kid will love (yes, even the picky ones)

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/photos/2011/oct/11/222551/ So, last week was our first week of the year without a [CSA][1].
