The Seed Fairy

My green thumb came only as a result of the mistakes I made while learning to see things from the plant’s point of view. ~H. Fred Dale

Sustainability is something that I have recently become interested in. So what is it? In a nutshell, we depend directly on the earth to live so Sustainability is learning how to live harmoniously with Mother Nature. We need to evolve into a symbiotic relationship with the earth instead of a parasitic one.

In my beginning effort to reduce my footprint and save some dough $, I have attempted to plant lettuce, peppers, and tomatoes in my backyard. I love the idea of hanging plants upside down to grow. Eventually when my thumb gets greener, I would love to make over the yard into a Hanging Garden ( of Babylon 🙂 ).

If anyone has tips or tricks they would like to share, I’m all ears £)

Have you heard of the Lilypad?

How cool does this look? The basic concept is that this Lilypad is a floating city that produces it’s own energy and processes CO2. To learn more about this visit http://inhabitat.com/lilypad-floating-cities-in-the-age-of-global-warming/ . They also have other really unique ideas.

After global warming raises the level of the oceans and we have massive loss of land, where do we go? I think it would be really neat to live on one of these, anyone else feel the same? I just wish there wasn’t going to be a need for them in the future.

Portsmouth Dog Park

I live along the New England Seacoast, in a town that is not exactly the most residentially friendly of places; they are more concerned about making money and are becoming more commercially driven every year.

However, we do have some gems that are just a short drive away. City of Portsmouth Dog Park located on Junkins Ave is one of them. It features two fenced areas, one for big dogs, one for smaller poochies. There is a hydrant that is set up for people to fill up water bowls, and there is even a turtle kiddie pool to use during those hot & humid summer days.

A shaded picnic table is available for our two legged patrons, with a bulletin board with magazines like Bark. There is a kid’s playground and tennis courts adjacent. Two portapottys (hmm, is that how you spell it?) are also provided…thank goodness because I plan on spending hours hanging out here during the summer.

Well, enough about my glowing review of this park ( it’s the only fenced in one I have found so far) and enjoy a picture of Mocha leaping out of his hidey hole 🙂

“Who in the world am I? Ah, that’s the great puzzle.” – Lewis Carroll

Hi! I’m Jessica, entering new territory releasing the thoughts in my head out upon the world. I am in a dedicated relationship and we have one fur child. His name is Mocha and he his a Beagle mix, turning a year old next month- sometime in June. Right now I am back in school working on a degree in ECE; I should have had my business degree by now, but I can’t seem to pass Calculus. I’ll try for that again later.

I enjoy spending time outside; walking, hiking trails, camping, reading, and playing with Mocha but am not fond of winter weather or sports. I like to try different things all the time. And by ‘things’ I mean various crafts, hobbies, or experiments. I am hoping to use this blog as a means of recording my thoughts, adventures, and personal discovery.
