Wisteria smells even more beautiful than it looks.  A prolific bloomer in the Spring it grows as a vine and can become invasive. Here in nature it has grown through a tangle of trees and grown nearly 40 feet into the canopy.  But beyond the visual display, the fragrance in the breeze was intoxicating.

Composting your kitchen waste, grass clippings and leaves are an excellent way to increase the organic matter and microbes in your garden (or lawn) soil. But composting in the Winter is next to impossible.
Living in a condo or in the city with limited space makes it equally challenging, but what if you could do it inside? I have been doing this for over six months now and I have to admit, it is about the easiest thing I have ever done!

Starting seeds indoors this year?  Learn some great tips on how to get nearly 100% germination rates and pick up some tricks along the way.  Here is a good shot showing the scale of a sprouting seed and a misplaced root sporting hundreds of filament like 'hairs' that pick up moisture.

..."What goes largely unreported however, is that composting facilities produce the same amount of greenhouse gasses as do landfills..."  But there is a more efficient method that does not produce greenhouse gas and retains nearly all carbon and nutrient compounds the soil needs. (And it is a whole lot cheaper!)

Talking about the EPA and how they are charged with protecting the environment jogged my memory about this gem. You will be 'happy' to know that the EPA is doing all it can to support recycling. In fact they allow toxic waste from various manufacturing processes to be 'recycled' and used as filler for fertilizer companies. Rather than enforce regulations to have hazardous waste (that include heavy metals and radio-active materials) disposed of in a safe and secure manner, they have instead decided in their wisdom to allow some corporations to save millions of dollars and let them sell it to fertilizer companies. But they DO have your interest in mind. They don't want to alarm you, so they do not require the fertilizer companies to disclose the full ingredients to farmers or the lawn care companies or on the bags you buy at the local mega-mart. This fact is so beyond logic and comprehension it still makes my head spin! Just imagine how much we ( and our children) have already eaten. Why this STILL is not main stream news, I just don't understand. Must be what Charlton Heston's character felt about finding out about Soylent Green!

That certainly is good news about recycling. I'd rather support that than enforcing regulations to have those waste disposed in other areas.

You know it's kind of funny too Deanna, they are supposed to be "looking out for the environment and the public welfare" but I am hard pressed to find any proof of this, quite the contrary.
