So we wait for the sun to appear.  All this rain makes for dreary weather. Yawning at work and wishing we were somewhere else.  Just like magic, after the rain clears, we wait for the rainbow.

FACT:  Did you know, the US U.S. consumes the most global resources. We use 19+ million barrels of oil in a single day. Since 1990, greenhouse gas emissions have risen 11%. These same gases are what cause global warming. We need to make a change now. It's time to use renewable energy sources, such as solar power.

Switching to Solar Power

Solar energy provides a renewable source of energy and was first "discovered" or "invented" by Frank Shuman in 1897.  Today, many advancements make it not only affordable to have solar energy powering your home, or business.  Once debuted at a costly initial investment alternative to monopolized energy companies,  it is now easy and affordable to make the switch to solar.

Old Solar Panels make this table interesting at Heritage Wood Company.

Living "off the grid" is making solar panels more popular than ever, so is easy financing plans where it is affordable that you can convert or add solar power to your life at a fraction of the cost.  A big problem is misunderstanding or being overwhelmed with where to start, and most people just don't know what company to select.

According to See.Solar , people switch to solar power every three minutes. Solar City has made it possible to figure out plans in your state and area to help you make the switch easy! What a great way to live green. Watch this video to see what you need to do for solar power.

Summertime is here , weather is sunny and crops are booming. Here's some great Eco Products for the home, and your life. 

Vintage Garden Tools on Etsy
Garden Tool Set, $24 VintageABCs

No garden is complete without plants, tools and cute decorations. First up, we have some antique gardening tools for the taking. Buying vintage means you are using something discarded yet fully functional, doing your part to upcycle and not buy mass produced crap items that will further clog the landfills.  Let's face it, if the tools above are still around this means they don't make them like that anymore! These tools above will last you plenty of seasons to come!

Tiberian Grow Dome for Fresh food Plans Here
The Tiberian GrowDome System is your solution for fresh food.  Find it here:

Next up, we have a Garden Growdome.  This is a must for the eco conscious gardener. The bottom line is before Monsanto, and use of growth chemicals and harmful sprays, people grew their crops and harvested them in a healthy and timely manner.  Now, with population spurts and climate issues, Monsanto backed by large box retailers are under fire for teaming up to mass produce items in a hurry.  This includes spraying them with harmful chemicals, using fertilizers that are harmful, or contain growth hormones.   Long term issues include health problems. 

Now you can be corn fed with natural untainted crop by using this udpated Tiberian Grow Dome system . The mere theory dates back to 14AD --- and has been updated to today's gardeners. This way, you can make a climate to safely grow your plants to the max without the use of pesky hormones and unfriendly chemicals.  The guide is available for less than the cost of a gallon of weed killer, which you don't need anyhow.  Get on the bandwagon here
