Betsty Steele - Dog with Sunflower

Looking Out | Looking a sunflower in the face

These sunflowers are all volunteers. None of them sprouted from hand-planted seeds. Overfed finches dropped them as they scattered from our winter bird feeder. Or last year’s varieties, bent over and dragging at the end of summer, left some seeds on the ground, somehow avoiding nibbling by voles.

Susan Sampson | Canning season

Canning food is old-fashioned! Never the less, it’s harvest time in home gardens, and home canners are streaming into the local hardware stores for pint and quart canning jars, jelly glasses, and lids and rings to seal them.

Dave Bartholomew | Sustainable living tour announced

The Wenatchee Valley has much to be proud of. We are literally world famous for everything from fruit trees to beer fests. But there is another aspect of our valley, often out of view, that we should be equally proud of: people leading a healthy, sustainable life. There is even an event touting this, known as the Leavenworth Sustainable Living and Farming Tour.

Dave Bartholomew | Stay connected with reality

In earlier columns I made the point that sustainability really is just another word for reality; that we don’t have a vote in what ultimately is sustainable. Reality will decide. Therefore, if we really want to be more sustainable, we must constantly strive to root our decisions in reality, not in our desires.
