Happy Earth Day!
Here on the farm we take caring for the Earth pretty seriously. We compost, grow without pesticides or fertilizers and have adopted many small lifestyle changes that will hopefully have a positive impact on this planet.
One of the things we do, right from the first year we bought this old farm, is plant trees. I can't even begin to count the number of trees we've planted on the property. This year we are planting less than we usually do, but we're still planting trees. Last week we planted eleven, an apricot and ten Canaan firs.
Today we're planting ten Callery Pear trees. They're pretty, produce fruit for birds and small animals and enrich the air we breathe. What's not to like?
I hope you have a lovely day. Any Earth Day plans in your neighborhood? Or your backyard?
