    The main motivator is the fact that I have absolutely zero desire to be out in public.  I don't "go for a ride"; I don't meet up with friends; vacations are far too expensive for me.  I don't sit in traffic for hours and hours just to go to work. My needs are practical, but, from time to time, require some heavy lifting (usually when...

    I think I already know what practices to continue, and what behaviors I must change as an individual. The parts that are overwhelming is the apathy of OTHER people.  I simply think that not enough people care.  While video games, and virtual reality tours are great to visit places that you will never see, I think it's silly that we need...

    Clichy-Batignolles' eco-district; it implements multiple solutions to climate issues.  And there are plants EVERYWHERE. Seriously, go read about it, it's great. Yet, the story of Samsø, Denmark, is also exciting, because its transformation followed a timeline--a sequence of events based around an ultimatum.  It addressed the concerns of older...

    I love the idea of geothermal energy.  Considering that the system is...how should I say, "simple", it makes me wonder why geothermal energy wasn't more of the standard.  Then again, it's probably no easy feat to install those pipes. Sorry, I have the tendency to reflect on these topics instead of answering the question and moving...

    Finished transplanting tomatoes!  This makes five tomato plants, and five bell pepper plants!  Now, I have to make sure that I have adequate amount of organic fertilizer/compost to keep them going...and be on the lookout for tomato hornworms.   I also took a risk and transplanted the Mexican sunflowers out to their summer homes...  Hopefully...

    Tithonia rotundifolia, Mexican Sunflower "Torch".  The butterflies absolutely loved these last year, so, I decided to start up three to be transplanted when it gets consistently 70+ degrees outside.  They'll be added into the anti-deer moat....as they can get around 8 feet tall.  Great camouflage. Tagetes patula, French marigold. ...

    And now, a confession:  Rather than planting a tree for Earth Day...  I'm having two of them removed.  The process started Friday, courtesy of the fine folks at David Tree Service.  https://treeservicesva.com One of the oak trees in my backyard is sickly and blackening at its base.  I believe the poor thing became housing and nursery for...

    I finally got around to sowing those Lavender and Virginia Bluebell seeds I had in my fridge...  Might be way too late for the bluebells.  We'll see. This time, I had sowed them into disposable K-Cups, as opposed to plastic and paper Starbucks cups.  I had grown lavender in the K-Cups last year (I didn't have many other containers available),...

    I had to take some time to put some thermal cover over the milkweed (and crew) that I had started to harden off outside.  I'm looking forward to getting back outside once this cold front passes through.  Good work is never done!

    It allows me to plan out my meals better and have less waste. If I understand what all the dates mean then I can learn to stretch certain items to use all that I bought.
