Quote of the Day: Alicia Silverstone on Gardening Nude

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Movies,

Alicia Silverstone on Health Magazine

“It probably started when I was doing my garden the first time. I’d be out there, and it would be scorching hot, so I would take off all of my clothes and garden. And then I would jump in the pool and swim—and I always get in the pool naked, because why would you want to put on a bathing suit? But I’m not a nudist at all. I’m shy. I’ve never done nudity in a film, ever. I don’t want anybody to take a picture of me naked. But in my own home, in my garden, [nudity]’s OK.”

-Alicia Silverstone talking to Health magazine about activities she enjoys while nude.

Smart Planter

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Household, Misc. Tech,

Smart PlanterBefore you take off on your next trip, save the price of a house sitter and get some Smart Planters with built-in computers. Fill the reservoir and it will check the soil every half hour with a moisture probe and store the information in its memory. It will then water it when the need arises. The device holds a 10-inch pot and needs 3 D batteries (not included.) You can use the Smart Planter indoors or out, with free-standing or hanging plants, and there is a guarantee not to overwater. The SP has a MSRP of $49.95.

Many people would love to buy produce, organic meat, and live a more wholesome life. But what stops most of us? Money, time and space. The mindset I’ve struggled with is, “I can’t buy organic because it’s too expensive,” or “I don’t have the space to have a because we have such a small yard.” My husband, Chris, found this website called Path to Freedom, that really challenges those limiting mindsets. The website is put together by a family who lives in urban Pasadena, California. This family has turned their small 1/5 acre lot into a rich garden with around 400 varieties of edible plants, supplying nourishment for them as well as a sustaining organic produce company. I found this site interesting and extremely inspiring. Take a look at their site and see if it doesn’t inspire you to turn your rose bushes into string beans!
