Always looking for interesting plants for pollinators and food! Bonus points for highly, and pleasantly scented plants.

Okay, I'm going to pick on the manufacturers of Cheerios now. I saw something about Glyphosphate, an ingredient of Roundup. Cheerios was rated as containing a very high level of Glyphosphate, which can be unhealthy and even cause cancer in humans. Not to mention it isn't good for insects and wildlife either! Just sayin'...if they want to do the right thing, clean up their product!

Bingo! Thanks Linda!
