Nothing spoils nature’s splendour

Green Up Day in Vermont is a day when the people of the Land take to the roadsides, woods, and riversides to pick up all the crap left behind — or thrown from cars —  by careless losers. (No photo available.)

People of all ages out with their special green bags (and latex gloves) stumble upon points of interest as a reward. Today I saw I giant marshmallow, a tricked out tree, and a [Northern?] Magnolia. I learned that beef from grass-fed cows contains the recommended ratio of omega 6s to omega 3s (3:1), and that cows fed hay cut from the flood zone after Hurricane Irene had guts blackened by snails in the grass. Sooper ick.

  1. I’m quite surprised to learn that there are trash throwers in Vermont. The highlight of our village cleanup day was when a group of Boy Scouts stumbled across a skeleton. Turned out to be a deer, but for a brief moment, I felt like I was in an episode of CSI.

    • Last year I found a bone sticking out both ends of a broken jar neck–same idea. What was the story? Did the jar cause the death? What kind of animal was it? Could I do this for a living?
