Thinking green

Ladybug that made its way home with us from Grandville Island in Vancouver

The yard is looking a bit, um, weedy again. It’s kind of moody that way. And because it’s September already, that means it’s time for the weed-n-feed. This year is our first applying an organic product. We used it for the first time in the spring. I’m hoping that regular application is going to help our yard look nice while saving all the poor innocent chipmunks. Not to mention my own two dogs.

We’ve also started choosing environmentally friendly household cleaners. We put so many chemicals into the ground, water, air…I’m just glad some companies are willing to make safer products. Here are a few places to look:
