I am off to a great start to show our amazing planet some love today.  Our tiny garden is growing nicely.  We have a pepper (its only about 1/2 inch big) and ALOT of blooms on the squash.  I bought two more squash plants  and a cucumber plant this morning and have planted those.  The… Continue reading Today Is Earth Day – Love The Earth
