Earth Day 2013

tulips 4-21-13

Last week was a difficult week. As someone on Twitter pointed out, you know it's been a crazy week when the story about an Elvis-impersonator sending a ricin-laced letter to the President is not the top news story in the U.S.  Here's to hoping that this week is more peaceful than last week, not just in this country but all over the planet.

For Earth Day, I like something that CNN's Eatocracy blog posted last year: Try to grow something that you can eat, or join a CSA, or support your local farmers' market. Do one thing to keep your resources in your community. I think it's a nice way to focus on our environment, and to remember that old slogan-- "Think globally, act locally."


  1. I like that thought, too. It's almost time for our local farmer's market to open, and I'm so excited! You do a great job of eating locally. I think if we all did that, it would make a big, big difference!

  2. I like the idea of supporting our Local farmer's market too. I agree that it's a good way to keep resources thriving in our communities. IT ALSO gives us a verity of foods and home baked goods that we can't find in our mass market food stores.

  3. What a lovely post, I totally agree, if we all do something on our own patch that is positive the world will be a better place.xxxx

  4. Yes, all is true! I am soooo excited to get my first CSA share of the season in a few weeks. Yum!

  5. I love this idea and we are looking into it locally as I hope to find a good organic grower.
