• Welcome Terrapins!

    Please welcome Backyard Digest's two new mascots! Inspired both by the concept of "gradual greening" and by one of my favotite album covers (Grateful Dead's "Terrapin Station"), they are the creations of George Lawrence, Harvest the Rain's awesome illustrator.

    Please suggest names for these happy creatures! I'm imagining the terrapin using the rake being female and thinking the terrapin carrying the shovel could be male. What do you think?

    How about Jerry and Micky? They are both names that could be male or female.
    BTW - Thanks for the plug.

    True...Bobby/Bobbie could work, too.

    Samson (with the shovel) and Delilah (with the rake)

The final frontier.

These are the musings of an engaging enterprise.
Its thirty-year mission:

To create a greener planet.

To seek a better life in our lumbering civilization, and

to slowly go where we are all are headed anyway.


Is an unproven system for generating wide-spread sustainability.

it asks for 10 minutes a day for a year. At the end of the year, it asks for 10 more.

So in the second year, you spend just 20 minutes a day, in the third year, 30 minutes.

If you keep up this pattern, 27 years later you spend over 4 hours per day being extremely green.
