World Wildlife Fund is asking individuals, businesses, governments and organizations around the world to turn off their lights for one hour – Earth Hour – to make a global statement of concern about climate change and to demonstrate commitment to finding solutions.
Won't you join us?

The article says they will not be growing beets, as the President doesn't like them,
but we'll grow another row here in our corner of the Garden State..
just in case he changes his mind. ;-)
I never liked beets until we grew our own. There is nothing like it!
Now, the Obama's have no real experience with a garden, and they are giving it a try,
how about you? Yes, I realize they have a staff, but your lack of staff should not hold
you back. Just make it small enough to handle, we started out quite small.
Maybe this week I will post those old photos of our first garden here.
We just get bigger most every year. Because we just have to grow the Purple Haze

An Irish Blessing
(A Blessing from St. Patrick)
May the road rise to meet you, May the wind be always at your back, May the sun shine warm upon your face, May the rains fall soft upon your fields, And, until we meet again, May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
(Traditional Irish Blessing; origin unknown, although some attribute it to St. Patrick.)

The slate we picked up from my Grandparents over the winter, has begun
to be placed around the yard (instead of piled near the garage).
I will try to get the radishes sown today. We are expecting some rain tomorrow.

It is warming up enough to open the windows
We might have been inside keeping warm, but ,George, the "cat next door"
was hard at work, patrolling the grounds. Don't fear for the birdies, he is not a bird cat.
He takes care of any rodents, the doves and other birds don't mind him a bit.
Maybe, because he has birds in his house, he does not bother the wild birds.Or, maybe there are enough rodents in the neighborhood to satisfy his need to hunt.
