All it takes is a cone to start your home forest

All it takes is a cone to start your home forest

The upcoming library book sale and other upcoming things to do

Still walking and my focus now is to take over 5,000 steps a day.

Something I found in a magazine: If walking near trees, bring a recently fallen cone home. Put it in a pot so that most of it stands out. Pour in every day a small amount of water, careful as excess water makes the cone rot. After some time, a tiny tree will appear. You are to be congratulated, you have just started oxygen production and you have a piece of forest in your own home. You are doing something for nature and you will see what nature does for you.
