I’ve never been into Astrology, but when Earthbound Farm asked me to take the Salad Sign Quiz they were offering as part of their 30th birthday celebration, I was willing to reconsider. Salad Astrology? Now that’s up my alley. (P.s. Take the quiz and be entered to win one of 30 “mystery” prizes they’re giving away each week this month. […]
