What have you done today to lower your impact?

We are washing away the foundations of our existence on every front. It is high time we move from crashing about on the planet like a bull in china shop and find a way to go forward with intent. We must find systems of living based on sustainability. The systems and tools exist, it is up to each of us to adopt them.

The first strawberry

We planted this bed in late June of last year after our first batch failed. They slept away the winter and now we have the first fruit. So sweet, no chemicals (non organic grocery store strawberries have upwards of 17 applications of chemicals), no food miles. What a Delight!

I see another one right up front! We are picking organic strawberries, onions, beets, beans and tomatos out of my dad's garden too. YUMMY

Yeah that one wasn't quite ripe, congrats on the fresh local food. Just to let everyone else know, that comment came from Bermuda, which has 3 solid growing seasons and produces the best strawberries in the world.
