 h1. Dear readers,
 I'm writing this a little early because when you receive it, I will be a couple of days into a backpacking trip — far away from plumbing, a soft bed, and the Internet. I hope we'll find huckleberries; in any case, there will be dried noodles and dried fruit and dried hummus. There will be couscous and lots of painstakingly filtered water. There will be lemon drops (the candies, not the cocktails).

 Obviously, this trip's not about the food. This one's about walking, wildflowers, the wind in the trees. And the stars. 

 Our trip in two weeks? That one's about food — and how. And if you too are in the Bay Area over Labor Day weekend, you may [/read/alerts/GreensMALTdinner?utmsource=NL081308&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=GreensDinnerTickets&utmcampaign=SFN-Promo "win a chance" newpage=true] to join Deborah Madison at a Greens benefit dinner. We'd love to see you there.
