In the How-can-I-make-the-world-a-little-better-without-having-to-convince-anyone-of-anything, here’s one anyone who wants to can engage in without much effort, especially all you Farmvillers. How about growing one real plant?
Believe me, I’m blind, and I can do it, so for most of you, this should be a piece of cake. And, even if you have a black thumb? So what? Go get an air fern. Not only do you get the benefits of a plant, it takes virtually zero effort to keep it alive.
One plant. Or, if you’re in a nice location with outdoor access, how about a shrub? A small tree? Hell, even a bonsai tree you don’t sculpt is a nice addition.
Just about anyone can grow a fern, a juniper, a boxwood, and any number of attractive flowering plants. They help the environment, they improve the air you breathe, they look nice, and they’re cheap. Most even come in their own pots, and for a non-user like me, that’s pot use I can give two thumbs up to.
There, that’s my .02 cents for the day. If you can harvest crops daily online, you can help out with a single plant. Give it a shot. I’m guessing the sense of accomplishment is going to be just a little
bit better than that overnight-orchard you spent money on, without a single
piece of real fruit to show for it.
