well this is sucky news- I planted several milkweeds (that petered out) trying to do my part.

I let native Goldenrod and cloverand dandelion grow beautifully in my front yard much to the chagrin of my Republican stuffed shirt Rotary "lawn" lover neighbors.

I have suffered many insults about MY CHARACTER as "lazy" etc, because I grow a yard that feeds these enadangered creatures that in turn prevent US from facing OUR endangerment.

elderly, outdated, Fux-y anachronisms...who called the "city" on me nonetheless. Idiots who can't recognize "indigeous" savior plants from "weeds"............often what are considered "weeds" are native flowers/plants, those most beneficial to the individual ecosystem.......".fancy" non-native stuff need not apply. I love dandelions, clover, Goldenrod etc............

and my elderly neighbor has sprayed Monasanto weed crap on MY LAWN early morning (before she thinks I'm up) , to try to make MY LAWN come up to her bourgeous standards of environmental apocalypse......................

sheesh

even in my somewhat less tahn conservative neighborhood, my immediate next-door tries to kill my attempts of establishing a supportive yard.

She and her relatives call all trees "DIRTY", 'cause they shed leaves in fall, ya know?? shedding leaves: dirty.

ee gads

peace y'all, even for our most tiny plots of sanctuary

Until people get over their borgeous concepts of "gardens" and "landscaping" no one will care about the "bigger picture" of horticulture and farming.

they see POISON as a necessary function.

Who Will Stop World War III?

Thom plus logo Back in 2001, after 9/11, Congress gave the president the authority to basically wage war anywhere in the world where there were governments affiliated with Al Qaeda, the radical Sunni Muslim group that came out of the Saudi Wahhabist movement. Iran is Shia Muslim, essentially the sworn enemies of the Sunnis.
