Awareness Days

`It's Pick Strawberries Day and since strawberries are one of my favourite fruits, why not write about them. I don't know of any picking strawberry fields in the Vancouver area, yet, so I guess I'll have to pick them from the farmers market or grocery store. I will be having my fill.

`Did you know that there are 103 varieties of strawberries around the world? But only a few may grow well in your part of the world. Find out more here.

`Did you also know, very ripe strawberries are a natural teeth whitener. So eat up, they won't stain your teeth! Learn more here.

`Strawberries on ice cream, strawberries & cream, strawberry shortcake, the possibilities are endless! I love strawberries! Have a great May 2/4 weekend or Victoria Day, for those that celebrate or have the day off!

~I remember participating in Earth Day in 7th or 8th grade. I guess I don't remember it that well, since I can't recall the exact grade. We had a ceremony at school, where we planted a tree and listened to someone(?) talk about the environment and what we could do to make the earth healthier. I don't remember much else. A few things that I'm doing today, to help take care of our earth...

~ I do my best to recycle and compost. My apartment building does the full recycling/compost thing and I love that! I do miss my 2 big compost bins that we had in our backyard, because I could use the compost in our garden. I'm trying a mini compost on our apartment patio, mainly consisting of egg shells, which is supposed to be good for the soil. I'll see how that goes.

~I've definitely reduced my consumption of meat (No plans to go full vegan). Mostly because of health, but also because I'm still trying to lose some last pounds and I want to maintain that loss. So less meat is good for everyone all around. And of course less methane gas, produced by animals.

~Someday, hopefully soon, I'll be able to plant a tree or two in my own backyard. Maybe a fruit tree, if the climate will allow it. A great way to keep the air clean!
