No Longer a Tool of My Tool

It wasn’t sitting well with me, getting paid to write and blog by a huge chemical company.  I rationalized it for a while.  Basically, I needed the money.   But I’m no longer blogging for (which is owned and run by Scotts) It’s tough to get paid to write blog; there just are not many chances for that.  But come on Jenks, you have a book that is basically a plea for gardening in ways that are truly sustainable, more gentle on the earth.  It’s how you garden and live.   So no more, I’m being true to myself or as Thoreau advice, I’ll no longer be a tool of my tool.

(We’ve been in New England this week, I’m working on an essay about swimming in Walden Pond, hence the reference to Henry David Thoreau.)
