I photographed a story about pickling for The Inlander, this week.  I want to try it. It looks like it’s challenging. But, you can make home-grown food last so much longer. Plus, pickles are good.

I photographed a story for the Inlander in which writer Heidi Groover vividly lays out the difference between how Washington state and the federal govt. treat marijuana. While legal medical marijuana has been legal in Washington state for years and the state more recently passed a law to legalize recreational marijuana, possession is illegal at the federal level. To read more and see a couple of more photos, go to: http://www.inlander.com/spokane/prisoners-of-war/Content?oid=2372831
