Please don't forget to recycle your Christmas tree~many local communities have recycling shredders to add mulch into park district and community centers landscape!

Recycle reuse and redo....

I do have my own tea garden. I grow two flavors of mint, a lemon balm, a lemon thyme and some white sage. I would love to grow chamomile too.

Hey There! Jilly! It is very cool having your own tea garden growing! Good for you~I have a green thumb but my kitchen area has no location for window light am currently looking into the "domed-type" lit garden. I'll keep you posted how that'ws going!

Let us know from time to time how your garden turns out & at this point heard that chamomile is very hard to grow & hard to get?? (also tempremental)

Did you know that you can start your seeds indoor in tiny "peat" cups and then when it is time to plant into containers or into the garden one can put the entire peat cup into the ground? They are totally biodegradable and one is encouraged to purchase them!

Refuse to buy in plastic containers!

Who is planning their garden around their salads?

Who just purchased a rain barrel?

Who will recycle old things into fashion garden art?

Will you do any of these things this coming Spring & summer?

Dear Green lovers and garden gals & guys-

No local farmers market in your area? Start a neighborhood garden swap in someone's garage~

Send e-mails to neighbors and give extra fruits & vegs. to each other! Start seeds & exchange seeds with each other! Exchange ideas and seeds, create a community garden~

Sounds fun & envoke a community spirit, pride in the neighborhood and even may feed someone who is a little less fortunate! Please Please Let us all know if you do this & how it turns out!

I hope that you planted a tree for Arbor Day & are now onto your garden.

Have you geared your garden toward your salad plate? Is your garden especially for salsa? Is you garden used to make your favorite tea?

Be green by planting flowers and have a habitat for animals & insects.

To all Green beings:

I try to plant for the habitat as well~

I love to bring birds, bees and other insects to my flower garden~it heps your garden grow as well as providing habitat that otherwise was not there perhaps~

P.S. Lady bugs found in your garden are a good sign that your garden is healthy and happy and from this you shall eat!

Dear "greenies",

This summer sure has been harsh on crops, gardens , and grass what Ideas have you for watering in this drought?

Have you saved water in your rain-barrel? are you rationing the water? What alternative methods have you found?
