Daily Prompt: Value of the Seasons

Fall is a sign the earth is about to take a rest from producing all the magnificent foods and goods that all living things depend on for survival.

To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven.    Ecclesiastes 3:1

Organic Gardening and Global Warming

There is definitely something causing problems with the earth and most of this is from man’s industrialization and pollution of air, land and water.  We only have one earth and even though yesterday was officially Earth Day, every day should be earth day!

It’s very important that we all be part of the solution instead of the problem and try to consciously refrain from the use of products that harm the environment even if you may have to work a little harder to achieve similar results, like weeding, for instance.  You can click on my Green Gardens page for more organic gardening tips.

We had a speaker at my elementary school back in the 1960’s that spoke of all the pollution that was being done at that time and I can only imagine that we are headed towards a point of no return to ever saving this planet one day very soon.

When our bees are gone, so are we.

Even more important than problems with our environment are the problems with the hearts and souls of mankind. There was a reason that religious teachings were so important to any civilized society and we are now finding out why. Even a poorly trained dog is hard to handle but a man who is not told the truth may lose his own soul. I made this video years ago when all the talk of global warming started because I thought there was really more important problems that man faced at this time.

Adventures in Edging My Lawn!

Cool down means catching up on all the garden chores I have neglected.

2013JulyGardenMuffin 005I live on a residential street that just happens to be the major thoroughfare off three main streets and leads to 2 large strip malls due to the design of this subdivision .  Lucky me!  I moved here from a completely different area and had I known this, I would have never have taken the house.  With the three-way stop being directly in front of my home, the carbon monoxide never quits and the neighborhood is very near some large factories.  I also did not know that there was a website www.moving.com/real-estate/compare-cities/index.asp.  Gives you air quality information and this city is not much better than Los Angeles California.

We have just had large areas of the street replaced in which the cement had to be cut by saw for the expansion joints.  It was never washed over so the cement dust flies every time the vehicles drive by.  I was hoping my dust mask will protect my lungs since I used to suffer from chronic bronchitis and asthma years ago until I began avoiding the triggers and protecting my lungs from dust and smoke. 

The lawn service decided to come and spray next door so I came inside til they were done.  Don’t like the fact of overspray on a windy day, but as someone who is completely against chemicals, I find the idea of what they do offensive.  I believe that tolerance has it’s place but if more people don’t wake up fast, we will pass the point of no return.  Too little, too late cannot save the planet that will be taking us with it when it goes.  If you have children or grandchildren or care about what happens to life as we used to know it please see what you can do to be part of the solution.

More to come.  Also not able to add but two tags because of WordPress problems.
