You know this is something I really never gave a second thought to really until I got an email from my good friend Lori with What the Ducks. She sent me an email asking me to be part of the fight for SOS: Save the Soils. I went to her page and actually watched the video by PBS. You can see the video here. Let me tell you something friends, if you get a chance in your day please check this video out. It’s 30 minutes of education showing how important it is to take care of this land so it will be here and work for us in a way it needs to.
I’m not an “outside” piggy so I didn’t know a lot about outside living. But you know what is interesting? Mommy told me some stories about grandpa (mom’s daddy). He was from the south and mom said that the entire time when she was growing up, they had a garden. And do you know what? He was using compost way back then giving to the earth year after year. He told mom that compost was the better way for a garden because it gives to the food that you plant. He probably didn’t know it then but he was making this world a better place for all of us. You put in what you get out.
And you know what else mommy said? If grandpa was still alive today, he wouldn’t want me just in any ordinary mud hole full of chemicals and yuck. I shiver just thinking about that. If grandpa was alive and I was an outside piggy, he would give me the cleanest, purest mud that even mommy could use. Now wouldn’t that be something special?
So my friends, today please take time and join with me on this very important SOS: Save the Soils. Not just for today – but every day. Let’s make this a better place to live and breathe.
