Happy Earth Day!

In honor of Earth Day, which reminds us to celebrate the Earth *every* day, I encourage you to get into the habit of shopping at your local Farmer’s Market. To locate one near you or someplace you are traveling to, search through Local Harvest. The pictures above are from the Santa Fe Farmer's Market last summer.

My mother, photographer Melabee Miller, posted pictures on her blog from the first Earth Day in New York City in 1970. I think you’ll enjoy them.
