Obviously summer is over in the northern hemisphere, where I live, so I am currently engaged in preparing my garden for winter. This used to be a much less involved task, but now that I’m a year into my horticulture program I know a lot of stuff I didn’t previously. Here’s what I’m doing to get everything ready for winter.
Last semester in my horticulture class discussion about the Keystone XL pipeline came up. One student said he hoped that construction on it would start soon, because it would create jobs and lower oil prices. He said he understood that environmentalists were afraid of oil spills or whatever, but that the risk of that was pretty low and the benefits were worth it.
