    This weekend I went for a few bike rides and I pulled out invasive plant species in a local San Diego canyon.

    Over break I logged over 14 miles in one day on my bike! I'm still sore but it was great exercise.

    I have now been riding my bike to school most days as well as to the store and to see friends. I feel as if I have a lot more energy, but I have also been hungrier. But an apple is cheeper and more sustainable than gas.

    The tomatoes I planted a month past are starting to fruit up as well!!

    Last weekend I took a limebike  to the store to pick up my food for the week. It is extremely cheep and convenient.

    I rode my bike to class today and it only added another five or ten minutes to my commute. Not only was it nice to ride but I felt more energized throughout the class.

    Over break I flew to New York to visit my brothers. I spent a whole week zipping around New York in their subway system. It was so efficient and easy! All I could think was how much I would hate to have a car there!

    I am in the process of setting up a new greenhouse so that I can grow tometoes and peppers this spring. Get ready for salsa!

      Well yes I set one up at school and I am going to put some of the extra carrots and radishes in that. This new one is going to take up most of my backyard. All my house mates like to garden so we are making a 10 by 14 by 7 feet high green house. We want to string the tomatoes all the way to the top.

      I am doing the same! I love bike riding - it's a fun activity while also cutting down unnecessary car trips.
