Left- black bean picked off green vine. Pod moist and still growing. Right- same black bean picked off dried withered finished growing vine. Both picked before the first frost.  Note: notice the hydration loss from the bean on right. Tomorrow We will post an after picture of both. We will note the hydration loss from the one on the left.

School Tour this morning

Ok so here it is...my first school group of this fall. Wasn't sun shiny matter of fact we got wet. BUT we had a good time telling stories of why trees leaves turn red yellow and orange in the fall; told one of Betty May Jumper's stories; and also,how Haudenosaunee got certain medicines! We got a whole renewed appreciation of the rain! I think Scribner Road school has some great up and coming thinkers and scientists!  Kudos to the teachers and parents there.

The Secret Life of Garbage

"In our way of life, in our government, with every decision we make, we always keep in mind the Seventh Generation to come. It's our job to see that the people coming ahead, the generations still unborn, have a world no worse than ours and hopefully better. When we walk upon Mother Earth we always plant our feet carefully because we know the faces of our future generations are looking up at us from beneath the ground. We never forget them."
- from Oren Lyons 

 It is sad, but some of our garbage may last for the next seven generations. See more in this wonderful "Secret Life of Garbage" graphic shared with us. Hopefully it will remind all of the future generations looking to us to make better, more sustainable choices.
