Starting any seeds this year? Here's an easy seed viability test for those older and traded garden seeds you may have around the house. See if the seeds are still good before you waste money and soil planting them.

What happens when "disruptors" like these from  +Dropbox disrupt the routine of a bunch of kids playing soccer? Maybe #Dropbox would prefer it if these kids left the park they've been playing in for years to join a nice street gang and let them take over the park. San Francisco's park department deserve a lot of blame here too. How do they run an experiment like this without explaining it to the community that relies on access to public parks? The "F*** the neighborhood" comment by one of the Dropbox guys is pretty telling of how much they respect the community. App deleted from my phone. 
Tech bros will stop at nothing to get what they perceive to be theirs. In the latest example of unchecked hubris, we witness as a squad of adults in Dropbox jerseys argue with and cuss at children over a San Francisco soccer field.

Need a last minute #ValentinesDay gift idea for a gardener? Say "I Love You" with seeds this weekend instead of roses or chocolates. The plants grown from heirloom seeds will last longer! #seedstarting #seeds #garden

As the garden has started to wind down, you may have noticed a lot of your plants going to seed. Check out my free tutorials on #seedsaving  if you want to learn how to save seeds.

http://mrbrownthumb.blogspot.com/2014/10/jenny-lake-grand-tetons.html Day two of #ALEX14 had us visiting #JennyLake in #Wyoming and climbing up to 7200 feet in elevation. Definitely the highest hike of my life so far. Read the blog for more pics and thoughts. #LatinosOutdoors #Latinos #NationalParks #hiking +National Park Foundation +Grand Teton National Park

I've been thinking a lot about Kevin Schneider, Deputy Superintendent of Grand Teton National Park, who I met during #ALEx14 at the Laurance S. #Rockefeller Preserve. He graduated high school in the #Chicago area and days after graduation he was on a train headed west to work in national parks and never looked back. Makes me wish I knew about the career options in the national park service when I was young. Are you in the job you dreamed of as a kid? +GrandTetonNPS +NationalParkService
