Edible Michiana

I am starting my morning with hot coffee and the digital copy of Edible Michiana. DH would always bring me the Edible Portland magazine, which I loved, so I was thrilled to find a Michiana version after the relocation. I "liked" the page on Facebook, so it shows up on my wall and I can see the current edition immediately online :)

I am actually scouring the ads right now trying to find local CSAs, nurseries and farms. It has been an awesome resource being new to the area.
