[Updated from title being the Thanksgiving comment]
Yesterday, the thing I most wanted to say instead of “Happy Thanksgiving”, was:
“Happy Stealing Things from Indigenous Peoples Day”.
But I didn’t. Maybe that’s wrong or right. I’ll go to a T-Day dinner with friends this Saturday, and I think I’ll be able to use that line and be understood.
So back to my normal passions: Did you do anything to green up the planet today? Or yesterday? Do you have green plans for today?
Or if you had the day off yesterday, did you do something you’d had on the agenda for a while but hadn’t gotten to? Yaknow, besides cooking?
My green achievement from yesterday is finally getting one of the new leaf fences built. Leaf fence? Yes — that’s taking some wire fencing, easy to work with stuff, and making a circle with it, then using coathanger to hold the ends together, then filling with leaves.
I got the leaves from Freecycle a few weeks ago (22 bags, plus the 5 I swiped from someone’s front sidewalk when they were waiting for yard waste pickup.). Seemed every time I went out to build the fence, there were 17 other garden things to do. And that’s even working a few days in the rain out there, when “rain” was more than “mist” or fog.
I got about a bag and a half in yesterday, found a bunch of ivy vines, will have to go through by hand to check for ivy now. Always something — but you can’t beat the price! Maybe I’ll dump them out on the driveway, sift through, and pitchfork into the leaf circle.
So that’s my green thing for yesterday. Now that I have this fence built, with 1-2 more to follow, so I can get more leaves any time now. Looking forward to it.
And you? Any green projects going on?
