I picked a basket full of tomatoes to make a big batch of chilli. It's great to have in the freezer for an easy homemade meal! And the beautiful bell peppers are great for stuffing, to use with stir fry, pepper steak and also freeze well to use over the winter.
I made the fun collage of my vegetables using the new collage feature in Picnik! Picnik is a photo editing software that you use in your online browser. It has lots of fun photo editing features, and fonts shapes and seasonal graphics that are easy to use.

BARE FACTS & STATS: If every coffee-drinking American used a refillable mug instead of a disposable cup, it would spare our environment close to 7 million pounds of carbon dioxide emissions every day. The annual amount of oil expected to produce plastic bottles sold in the United States is enough to fuel 100,000 cars for an entire year.
