This could be the biggest thing since the Virgin Mary appeared in a piece of toast. I am an lean, ego driven, nerdy racist. Cautionary tale? Or maybe its just a random thing.
The world’s largest purveyor of lawn chemical poisons has bought its way into the National Wildlife Federation.
I hope this means they will stop using toxic pesticides in their bird feeders.

U.S. Department of Agriculture Wednesday new Plant Hardiness Zone Map, last updated in 1990.Half of our nation's 80 million gardeners are now a half zone warmer according to the
Hardiness zones represent the average annual extreme minimum temperature during a 30-year period. In zone 5a, the lowest temperature on average was between minus 15 and minus 20 degrees Fahrenheit.

From the INPAWS Garden Tour Chair,
The committee would love to have your garden on our tour. Your garden has wonderful examples of how a homeowner can incorporate native plants and green planting principles in a suburban neighborhood. I know the visitors will learn a lot from your garden that they can incorporate into their own gardens. If visitors are like they were last year, your asparagus will be a big hit.
Learning to code on the net is like going into a bar and asking people how to fix a back ache. Everyone has a solution. Some good, some bad, some obsolete, some wrong. Simply configuring my computer with the proper version of ruby, rails, and database just so i could start learning was a two week endeavor. Its sort of like building your own lightsaber. My training curriculum: code year, rails casts, vim tutor, Satish Talim's Learning Ruby.

The Geist Watershed Alliance urges you to request a hearing on HB 1032 Phosphorus-free Lawn Fertilizers at this year’s legislative session.
Indiana water resources face many challenges. Most Indiana lakes and rivers face nutrient overloading and algae blooms -- which could cut down on recreation, tourism dollars, and property values. These blooms pose a health risk to your community; contact with the water can lead to dermatitis (rashes and itchy skin), and some of the toxins can cause liver toxicity and neurotoxicity.
HB 1032 will reduce the amount of phosphorus making its way into our waterways. Taking action on this bill will help minimize one significant source of phosphorus impairing our waterways.
Submitted to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources today by the Geist Watershed Alliance. LARE provides funding for watershed mitigation. Boots on the ground in 2012!
