Save the Babies!

Filed under: Uncategorized — unwriter1 @ 8:46 am

I can’t say I’m much on the greening kick we’re all on now. I tend to wilt plastic flowers. But, I noticed something outside today that I never saw before. Oh, I’ve seen it, but yet I didn’t. I was standing on the porch and watched the sky rain down a pile of helicopters. I think they come from elm trees but I’m not sure. Anyway, it suddenly dawned on me that these are baby trees! I feel it is only right that we save as many of these as we can. After finding a spot devoid of trees, plant these.

This same logic applies to acorns, walnuts and other baby trees that nature sends to the ground in fervent hope of growth. We as humans tend to see these baby trees and trash and we sweep them up and throw them away. We need the trees! So, for peace of mind and a more vibrant earth, plant a seed, grow a tree, but save the babies whenever possible.

  1. Good idea. I also do not rake the leaves off my yard, put them in plastic bags and have them towed off to a landfill. The forest soil is so rich because of the natural fertilizer of the nutrients in the leaves. Let them decompose over the winter on your property, and you’ll have naturally healthy lawns, ground covers, whatever.
