I'm clearing out some containers and packaging! Let me know if you're looking for anything in particular, or interested in everything for a great deal.
If you are ever lost while hiking, get stranded with a broken down car, etc... and you notice your cell phone is either low on juice or has no signal, here is a tip that very well may save your life.
PLAN AHEAD. Before you go, change the voicemail on your phone to a message that gives your approximate location, the time, the date, your trek route, etc.
The best part of this is that even if your cell phone dies or stops working, voicemail still works, so anyone calling your phone looking for you will hear the message and know where to find you or where to send help if you don't return when expected, etc.
"The coating contains only a few ingredients—the main one comes from Moringa oleifera, a tropical tree whose seeds contain antimicrobial proteins that can fend off microorganisms like bacteria and viruses—and can be easily made by the average person at home using a coffee grinder and filter."
Researchers from the College of Science and Engineering, University of Minnesota have discovered a liquid coating that, when applied to face masks, could potentially remove the COVID-19 virus on contact.

We recently posted a geometric analysis of a dandelion seed head. It is a beautiful analysis, but was only partial, and was unclear whether the pattern exhibited Fibonacci numbers if you count up the spirals.
To answer this question a little (with a sample size of 1) I took a macro photo of a dandelion seed head and counted the spirals. As expected, YES, they are Fibonacci numbers, 8 + 13!

The National Weather Service (NWS) tweeted Wednesday about a swarm of ladybugs moving through Southern California that is so large it registered as a weather mass on their radars. “A large echo showing up on SoCal radar this evening is not precipitation, but actually a cloud of lady bugs termed a ‘bloom’ #CAwx,” NWS San Diego said.
I love this.

Winter is usually a time to slow down and catch up. I can’t really say that I’ve slowed down much this winter but when the days are short it gives me more time in the evenings to settle in a bit. As much as I’d love to read in the summer, I rarely do. Right now I’m gathering some of my favorites and some new books to get into for the next couple months. Anything by Wendell Berry is always at the top of my list. What are you reading right now— or wish you were? . . . .#winterreading #goodbook #eatingisanagriculturalact #currentlyreading
So beautiful! 🌲

To Help Birds This Winter, Go Easy on Fall Yard Work
A manicured lawn might look nice, but messy is better for birds and bugs.
To protect pollinators, go easy on the fall garden cleanup
Time to rake up the yard, deadhead the perennials and till the vegetable garden? Not so fast.
Nothing you see on this RADAR image is precipitation. No rain. No snow. All of the returns you see are from airborne animals taking advantage of the northerly wind behind the cold front, aiding in their migration south!🐦🦋
Holy Huge Comb!
Every once in a while I get a call that makes me cringe. Sometimes the bees are way up high, and sometimes it's bricks. I prefer to be minimally invasive when removing honey bees from buildings. I don't like taking out bricks. Will the mortar chip out, or will the bricks crumble? Will the combs be usable once the bricks are out of the way? As much as I dreaded removing the bricks, the final view of the hive was AWESOME! The homeowner was more than pleased that we were able to remove and relocate the bees and their hive.
Why do we hate wasps and love bees?
Both are as ecologically useful, say scientists, and the same effort must be made to protect them.
Brilliant basket of gold. Calendula. I Love this bright beauty. I harvest and dry the flowers to be used for making oils and tea blends. I like to add the dried flowers to soup stocks especially in the darker winter months. I like using the flowers for immune and lymphatic support via infusions. Calendula makes a nice mouth wash and I love using it topically for cuts, rashes, and dry skin.
