Earth Day

One way to open your eyes is to ask yourself, ‘What if I had never seen this before?  What if I knew I would never see it again?’

~ Rachel Carson

M and I watched the documentary Food, Inc. on PBS last night.  It was a good reminder of why we have been changing the way we eat as well as how and where we buy our food.  If you haven’t seen it, you can watch it at pbs.org until April 28th.

Garden notes:  This afternoon I planted a row of mixed lettuces.  I finished out the row with a few spinach seeds.  Harvested a whooping 6 (lol!) asparagus spears.  It’s a start.

    Wow, you’ve got your lettuce and spinach in. Sounds wonderful.
    I’ve got a garden plot this year at a nearby farm, but I can’t plant til May 10th. I can hardly wait to get into that good earth!

    Since they’re cool weather crops, the lettuce and spinach will probably be fine even if we have a few more frosts. I’m thinking of putting in some Swiss chard too.

    It’s a lot of work, Bo. But so worth it. 🙂
