    My challenges are developing into habits after doing them for 2 weeks. I plan to continue with my new actions after EcoChallenge ends.

    It's amazing how much water is saved by taking quick showers and turning off the water while brushing teeth. EcoChallenge makes us so aware of the difference we can make for the planet and we have fun doing it.

    Spent time outdoors today preparing my garden's root vegetables for winter storage. We have eaten from our garden for months and now we will have an abundance to enjoy through the winter. We know where this food came from and how it was healthy, delicious and nutritious. No chemicals used here.

    Taking a 5 minute shower is becoming my new normal.

    I am getting used to a quick shower......and kind of like it. Why waste water and time in the shower?

    My compost heap was spread over my garden and worked into the soil this spring. A few weeks later several unfamiliar plants were growing in between a row of planted vegetables, something that looked similar to squash or cucumbers. The plants grew and produced round, light green fruit which turned out to be honeydew melons. We enjoyed eating one of the melons this morning with breakfast.

    I actually took a 5 minute shower! The water was cold when I got in but used it to wet and soap up my washcloth.
