I'm really pleased to see so many quality small businesses opening in the last year or so in the area, especially in the face of an uncertain economy. It seems that the worst things got, the more courageous and creative many people became; resulting in flurry of business openings and reinventions, cool new events, and fledgling non-profits.

We came home and with a mixture of hope and dread turned on the Mariners game. Bless their incompetent hearts, they actually won the game.
It has been a stressful year and little pockets of goodness like tonight feel really sweet.

The last year or so has been a big one for me, and I'm just now feeling that I'm settling into my new routine. I'm a lazy writer, and the more complex and momentous life events often seem too hard to write about. It's not a good trait for a blogger, since I end up chronicling the mundane and skipping the interesting stuff. I'll work on it.
Anyway, spring is supposedly here, and the farmer's markets are beginning to open around the county. Kitsap Cuisine does a fine job of writing about the local farm and food scene, including good articles on the local farmers markets. A full schedule of local markets is below. It seems like they're getting bigger and better every year, which pleases me no end. I have tomato seedlings happily growing in the laundry room and all the onions and most of the greens are in the ground. My snow peas are up and looking vigorous. So, yeah, it must be spring.
