This RM43 Weed Killer business showed up in my facebook feed the other day. I guess it showed up there because I tend to like gardening and general messing around on the farm. Now, what I do not like is spraying poison. Now, I figure at the very least all the spraying that is going on for growing a worlds supply of GMO corn and soy causes too much destruction, so why does my piddly little stuff need to make matters any worse. I hope to show all of the “Sprayers” out there just exactly what can be done without a drop of the stuff. I guess they didn’t appreciate my opinion of their product.
Well, that’s about all I got, take it easy.
Unfortunately, I think a large portion of the US population has an overinflated (and unwarranted) sense of entitlement – we want (or is it demand?) our cheap food/goods and quick fixes no matter what it does to other people, other countries, animals or the environment cuz ding dang it, we’re ‘MERICANS!
I applaud your efforts to do lead by example. Someone described the sustainable farming movement on another blog I read earlier this week as having the feel of a revolution – quiet and peaceful but world changing.
It’s time to wake up and smell the poison, people.
