Rabbit rabbit rabbit!

Rabbit rabbit rabbit! I have been told that if you say that on the morning of the first of the month, before you say anything else, you'll have good luck for the rest of the month. According to Wikipedia, the origins of the tradition are unknown but "some have also believed it is representing a jumping into the future and moving ahead with life and happiness". This morning was a rare morning in which Mark and I remembered. I suppose that's a good omen for the local-food year kick off, which is not today. We decided to make it the first day after we recieve our first farm share, so we will start this Friday, June 4th. There is still a fair amount of non-local food in the house, so unfotunately the transition won't be as dramatic as I was hoping for, but all of the perishable items (fruit, veggies, dairy, eggs) will be local starting Friday.
