We Let our Yard Run Wild. Here’s What Happened

This year has been all about the yard. We schlepped in mulch for weeks, making the orchard look a little nicer. I moved trees from the pond elsewhere so they would grow better and stronger. I planted more perennials by the pond so it would grow lush and green and flowery all summer long. I planted birch and trembling aspen so I could gaze up at their small leaves as they rustle in the breeze. All of that…




A place for the eco-conscious to share tips and tricks, educational pieces, poems and prose about nature and the environment. A reminder of when the environment meant something, when we felt the grass between our toes, when running around outside made us happy and excited.
