This digital art image was created from an actual picture I took of my daughter Rachel sitting by our lower pond one fall evening. It captures the serenity of the day and reminds me of so many moments where I found her lost in thought on the bank of one of the ponds or the creek. She loves nature and finds ways to spend time outdoors whenever possible. I decided to share the image after receiving so much positive feedback from friends and family. You can purchase it from Fine Art America in a variety of formats.
There’s something very special about being able to step outside your kitchen door and cut a fresh handful of organically grown greens! When you take into consideration that lettuce, kale, spinach and collard greens manage to hit the EWG (Environmental Working Group) Shoppers Guide To Pesticides’ “Dirty Dozen” list every year– meaning that greens are among some of the most pesticide-laden fresh foods found in the supermarket — this gives us just one more reason to grow our own food, and do it as organically as we possibly can.
