Celt's Garden - Corn Tortillas and Skagit River Produce

Winter squash stores well at cool room temperatures. If you didn't grow any winter squash, feel free to buy some from your local farmer. To prepare your squash for storage, wash off the soil, scrubbing gently with a soft brush, then go over the clean squash again with a wash rag soaked in cool water with a shot of bleach added.

Removal of Yard Sign Launch from the Events page

I removed the Oct. 9th Yard Sign Launch (which was my project and not a TW event) from the Transition Whatcom events listings because, on re-reading the vision statement and articles of TW at the suggestion of the TWOG, I realized that any event/post tending toward the political can be seen by some as an "us and them' issue.
