Earth Day Musings

Seems like it was a very long time ago when saving the earth was about exposing some manufacturing conglomerate's irresponsible habits.  Now the dinner table discussion is about global warming or EXCUSE ME-- global climate change, with our  family as a whole  wondering whether humans as a group can actually influence such a thing.  I am still horrified when I read about piles of toxic electronic trash in other parts of the world.   Can I do anything about that?  Probably not.

But I can make my little place in the country more beautiful and habital and clean.  Some of the old concerns are still vital--somebody still throws things out car windows.  I have to go pick it up all the time.  Most of us are probably guilty of owning something that drips oil and gas.  Fix it or get rid of it if you can!!  

We gardeners support a huge horticultural industry.  We should be green in our buying habits and encourage our industry to do the same.

All that aside, if we just take care of own little plot,  and our own little neighborhood community, and help our neighbors do the same, the world will indeed be a more beautiful place.  

Happy Earth Day
