You know what, I'm thankful for the Internet. As nice as it is to get away from technology every now and then, I wouldn't be doing this challenge if not for the interwebs.
Since I began gardening, I've enjoyed connecting with other people all over the world who share this hobby. It's fun to see what people are growing and eating and where they travel. It's also a great time waster (hello, Pinterest), a great resource for things I'm interested in (such as veggie gardening, seeds and vegetable growing tips, and food), and a place to find obscure things that I absolutely can't live without (like the sandwich coasters above. Yes, I own them and use them at cook-outs. Classy, no?)
