Earth Day Fest: April 11-22

Looks like we're having a real spring here! Not the rainy cold season we usually have until July. It's sunny! It's warm! It's record breaking! And we're probably going to pay for it come August with low water levels and high fire index. Hurray! Ah well... I'll take it.

I have my water barrel primed for the garden; I just got to figure out a way to make it self-watering. I even planted peas and lettuce already. I'm so anxious to start the growing season.

Since Earth Day is April 22, I thought I'd celebrate it with some Earth Day posts starting next week. Would you like to join me? Just write a post related to the earth in some way: gardening, ecological issues, book reviews... Go out and take pictures of nature... whatever. You can be as light or serious as you like. Then leave a link to your post on one of my Earth Day Fest posts. Write whenever you wish between April 11-22.

Hope you'll join me and have fun!


  1. This sounds like fun! I have the perfect pics to post.

  2. Hahaaa I will try to remember to take pictures of my cactus (just beging to flower) and the rhubarb seedlings that are starting to sprout.

    how timely! i just purchased a mini shovel and spade set for my nephew--we are going to do some planting tomorrow. i bought flower seeds, a mini-greenhouse, and starter pods. he's only 3 but not to young to learn about the earth and how to grow things. :) i'll take pics and share them next week.
