9.9.12 Dear reader

Today marks the one-year anniversary of Diary of a Tomato. Sometime last week we passed 200 posts, an accomplishment we never would have foreseen or thought possible when we began. Many thanks to you, dear reader, for accompanying us along the way. Writing here has helped us keep our sanity, find balance, and reminded us to pay attention as we go about our daily lives. We are grateful for all of your thoughts, advice and warm camaraderie that’s added so much to this experience. We hope you join us in the coming year, and look forward to your continued good company.

    Congratulations from a NH neighbor – quite an accomplishment. We’re thinking of head north through Maine this month. Any suggestions for stops?

      Thanks, Judy! Depending on how far up you plan on traveling, I’d recommend fitting in a visit to the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay. Also, MOFGA’s Common Ground Fair is happening 9/21–23. If you’re passing through Belfast, I’d recommend lunch at Chase’s Daily and a visit to their farmstore in back. Farther Down East, this is a wonderful time to visit Acadia and Bar Harbor!

    Congratulations! Love your blog – I really enjoy visiting for the food, the plants and the photos but most of all for your perspective. I’ve loved heaps of your posts this year but the ones that for me stuck out were your visits to the shrimp trawllers – memorable stuff.

    • leduesorelle says:

      Thanks, Liz, we’ve thoroughly enjoyed your blog in turn, and seeing the contrast in seasons between our two locations! I’m hoping to post more field trips like the shrimp one once I’m done with the Master Food Preserver Program…
