Today is not only Harvest Monday, it marks the second month anniversary of my blog. I was encouraged by Garden Writers Association to start one. Now that I’ve started, I can’t stop. It really is addictive. In 61 days, I’ve made 29 posts, and had over 1,400 blog hits from 46 countries. But I’m still a baby blogger, as in newbie, not as in blogging about babies. So much yet to learn.
It took me a while to figure out how to list blogs that I like on my blogroll. I was going to limit it to 20, but there are too many blogs out there that I like. So many good bloggers, so little space on the blogroll.
I figured out how to get the Clustrmap widget on my blog, and really enjoy seeing where my viewers live. But I haven’t been able to post a weather widget that functions. Seems that WordPress doesn’t support Java script. At least that’s what I think the problem is. If anyone else is using WordPress and has a weather widget, please let me know.
And now on to my harvest for the past week.
2 lbs navel oranges (4)
2 lbs 11 oz Meyer lemons (11)
4 oz Bearrs limes (2)
12 oz bell pepper (3)
That’s nearly 6 lbs of produce this week. Not bad for a garden that’s the size of a teacup. That’s six pounds that didn’t have to be shipped anywhere, six pounds that didn’t contribute to global warming.
The island of Tuvalu is going under with ocean rise. Some Alaskan Inuits already have lost their coastal villages. Check out these dramatic photos by photographer/journalist Gary Braasch of Portland, OR. http://www.worldviewofglobalwarming.org/pages/rising-seas.html
Do whatever you can, however you can, to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and curb global climate change. The planet is counting on us!
