Those who know me well know the great lengths I've gone to in the last few years to green our household. There are a couple things I've held out on:
1) still in search of a good eco-friendly foundation that actually provides real coverage (suggestions please ladies?), and
2) up through last summer, we were still hiring out a lawncare service that was spraying God-knows-what on our lawn 4-5 times/year (but boy did it look pretty & green :)
Well, Andy and Charlotte have big plans to expand our existing veggie & herb garden this summer. Combined with the 20 precious piggies that are already pounding a path from the deck to the swingset, the time has come for a more natural D.I.Y. solution...We just stocked up on our Milorganite for the season (bonus: this stinky stuff is created off the shores of our very own Lake Michigan). And the back-up plan if it doesn't work? We'll just put in a call to this lawnboy who I spotted in my parents' neighbors' yard today -- surely this company is using an organic fertilizer as well?? Maybe I should have saved this for an Earth Day post!
