It's Thursday, which means we're in the neighborhood of our grocery store, which means more trash pickup. Yep...it was there again. Along with a newspaper that was blowing apart in the parking lot. I felt like a crazy woman as I picked up the pieces while others walked by completely unaware. It was as if these were just autumn leaves to these people. Am I wasting my time?
We also turned in our plastic bag recycling (newspaper bags, produce bags and various shop bags we managed to pick up in spite of ourselves).
But today's project was --->
The project: Tossing the seedballs!
5 minutes, but only because we took our time
This was a fun completion of the project we began yesterday in creating the mud balls filled with native seeds to be dispersed in our community. We selected the abandoned center median strip of a busy local road, and the fenced in green space surrounding the neighborhood retention basin. That spot begs to be enjoyed, but the county, which fears lawsuits, won't take down the fence. At least it will look a tad nicer in a few weeks.
Yep, both today and in the future when they bloom and reseed themselves. The girls and I had fun "planting" and look forward to the added color.
