My cheese was moved last week. Missed posting to the Parenting theme. Great information with that one. I wish I had jumped into writing on a theme months ago. What a great learning experience for all hubbers. I know a little more on this one, so booking it for sometime this week. Maybe it will be on . . .
Well, you can still post Hub Answers to that Question. They're still counted as entries in the contest
Oh, I know the feeling, tsmog. This would be a great topic this week for me.
Here is my attempt.

In my haste, I did not hit the green answer button to start the new hub. I just went straight to "make a new Hub". Hope this is okay? If not, it was fun to write anyways.
Here is mine! Hope you like it.

Sorry Simone, I just now saw that you changed the topic. I should have published these yesterday. You can delete if you wish!
Oh, these are lovely! Besides, they kind of work within this week's theme, too. I mean, what "groceries" are greener than veggies grown in your own garden?
AHH! I love this topic-- I just started going green in my shopping this week and I love it!
But this is an extremely busy week for me.... D: I hope I can get this Hub in!
I have picked 2 and will write them tomorrow. They will be # 20 and #21.
Here's my hub on Creative uses of Plastic shopping bags
http://lobobrandon.hubpages.com/hub/Ten … pping-Bags
Oh cool, Simone these topics have really been researched well. I'm already ranking #5 for creative uses for plastic shopping bags.
Huzzah!! I can see why- it's quite the good Hub! You surprised me with quite a few of those creative uses... and I like to think I'm pretty creative when it comes to repurposing stuff!
Oh and the best part is that I already got a few views from Google - This is amazing especially for a topic I'd never think of writing on
Thanks again for the great idea - I'll try getting one more in within the week about woven and non woven bags
Here is my hub on creative use of shopping bags http://aevans.hubpages.com/hub/Five-Cre … pping-Bags

Here's my contribution to the weekly topic - "Which Eco-Friendly Products Make the Biggest Difference?". I published this a couple of days ago but forgot to post it here. So here it is!

As I had poked around an egg topic before, my interest in egg production methods was piqued, especially to find out if there were any nutrition/health impacts. The Organic eggs vs free-range and cage-free alternatives hub answer was the result of my curiosity.
It took me almost a week to write this hub but I am glad I managed to meet the deadline.
It is a hub about dirty dozen fruits and veggies

hope I posted this in time.
thought i'd posted yesterday but must have made a mistake!
I was so happy to find out I had 4 guest comments on my new weekly hubs but had to deny them all as they just did it to get backlinks! Never happened on my hubs before - always had true comments not just for the sake of links
That's a bummer, but it's good that you deleted them. It's important to not reinforce that kind of behavior, heheh!
Ya I returned from a boring day at University to check my stats and stuff and found that! I guess it was from the same person or I could say I'm sure as they were linking to the same blog. He/She did it on all three of my weekly hubs as well as my other going green hub!
Here's my offering about eating locally with a picture of our all local feast: http://hush4444.hubpages.com/hub/An-Eas … nvironment
