What have you made either to eat or in your home that required only "green" things

Such as Salsa from my garden, or refurrbished a chair for my house for examples.

How many of you have collected enough water in your rain barrels to water your garden or grass?

Dear lovers of this earth,

Tell us on this first day (officially) of Autumn what will you be doing in your garden? Will you move plants inside? Do you have a greenhouse? And are you making a difference in your own home?

Loc: Indiana
I have been moving the house plants indoors, which means much pruning, repotting and cleaning them up; meanwhile rearranging things inside to accomodate them again. Sadly I must let the big old (35+years)Oleander go. It has a bad case of scale insects and they have resisted everything I have tried all summer long to get rid of them. However, I have a clean 3 year old clone of the Oleander that is about 3 1/2 ft. tall, beginning to branch and bloom so it will still be with me. There are still about 5-6 plants to bring in, including the biggest one, a 45 year old tangerine tree that brushes the ceiling. The first frost is still a few days away, but I dare not waste any more time.

Dear readers of tea and green kitchen lovers,

What if any green thing are you doing for Thanksgiving? Do you do an eco-friendly farm? Did you raise your own? What other "green" ideas for the holidays do you have?

Cosmetics go green too! Mark (Avon Cosmetics) are the hipper & trendier part of the Avon company and they are selling bath soaps with white tea extract in them and these products are certified Fair-Trade. They are called Clean Up Time bar soap.

While I have no affiliation with this company & am not receiving compensation for this mention, I mentioned it because the cosmetics companies arelistening and now responding to "green" offerings.
