      THANK YOU, Mark! It’s nice to know I didn’t come off as geeky back then—though I realize now what a total geek I was!

  3. Love the name and concept of your blog. I feel “imperfectly sustainable” every day!

      Thank you! I think we get an A for Effort. If everyone tried—just a little—we could see some big changes. Glad there are others out there who feel the same way!

  4. So excited to get better acquainted and read all of your wonderful content. Thanks for linking up at Meet & Greet … and for being a member of the green community!

  5. This looks like a great blog. I’m so glad you are addressing the issues with trying to achieve eco-perfectionism. I’m not sure that there is a ‘one size fits all’ when we consider all the elements of sustainability.

  6. I found you on Reduce Footprints site. Your website is very nice. I am also in a green business and we are working on Autumn Preparations/ Emergency Preparations. I noticed you had one picture with some yarn and I was wondering if you had any autumn preparation tips? I have solar products and I do a lot with emergency preparations but I would love for other green businesses to submit their thoughts.

  7. Cool! That’s a clever way of loionkg at it!

    Hello green and amazing queen.
    Wondering if you can do a post of where and what to buy
    as far as the bee friendly natives.
    Why we shouldnt purchase plants from lowes and home depot ect.
    If you have time to do a post or upload another of your earlier posts.
    I am wanted to have a bird and bee friendly garden like you have.

      Sadly, even many local nurseries don’t stock native plants. Check the resource guide for a native plant society in your area. They almost always have and/or list native plant sales. If none exist in your area, search out local ORGANIC nurseries—ones that do not treat their plants/seeds with chemical fertilizers.
