I drank a bottle of MiricleGro and then got on my riding lawn mower

We’re deep in the middle of the deadline for our next book, coming out in November–more on that soon! Today some links:

From the two steps forward and three steps back department. Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa attends a groundbreaking ceremony for a school garden. So far, so good. But it’s sponsored by Scott’s MiracleGro who chipped in some dough in return for having their name and products liberally applied to the garden. A good science lesson for the kids? LAist.

  1. Scotts/Miracle Gro does offer a line of Organic soils now . . .They will go which ever way they can if there is money to be made! Actually, I do use their Organic line as my husband is a devout Miracle Gro kind of guy and he doesn’t understand why I won’t use it on the veg . . .so this gives him his miracle gro fix.

  2. I bookmarked the build it solar website several months ago as they have a LOT of cool stuff on it. Good luck with your deadline.
