Hey, everyone, how was your weekend? I hope it was nice -- I spent mine reading, and finished local author Heather Donahue's book Growgirl, which I enjoyed very much! 

Donahue has been best known as "the girl from The Blair Witch Project," but she spent a recent year as a cannabis farmer, then wrote an incredibly engaging book about the experience. 

I'm not a big pot person, by any means, but the book is about a lot more than that.  Recommended!
