Dolphin Blue’s 20th Year in Providing ONLY the Most Environmentally Responsible Products for Business, Home, Garden, Pets and Kids

Around two weeks have passed since Dolphin Blue was recognized as a B Corp “Best for the World” company. It is such an amazing honor for me to know that we are among the best of the best of small companies, in the entire world, that are “being the change that we seek in our world“.

I think fondly of my dream of 22 years ago, having a business that could make a difference in our world, and would make a difference in the livability of Mother Earth for future generations…

Indoor Tropical Fruit for Temperate Gardeners

Here are some things I’m growing indoors right now:

  1. Banana
  2. Pineapple (can be grown from the top of store-bought fruit)
  3. Mango (can be grown from the pit of store-bought fruit)
  4. Coffee
  5. Avocado (can be grown from the pit of store-bought fruit)
  6. Pomegranate (can be grown from the seeds of store-bought fruit
  7. Passionfruit (can be grown from the seeds of store-bought fruit)
  8. Kiwifruit (can be grown from the seeds of store-bought fruit)
  9. Guava (can be grown from the seeds of store-bought fruit)
  10. Cherimoya (can be grown from the pits of store-bought fruit)
  11. Kumquat (can be grown from the seeds of store-bought fruit)
  12. Blood Orange (can be grown from the seeds of store-bought fruit)
  13. Mandarin Orange (can be grown from the seeds of store-bought fruit)
  14. Clementine (can be grown from the seeds of store-bought fruit)
  15. Lemon (can be grown from the seeds of store-bought fruit)
  16. Grapefruit (can be grown from the seeds of store-bought fruit)

Not pictured:

I would like to try:

Papaya, Lime, Citron, Dragonfruit, and Starfruit.

Many of these, like the avocado, may never actually bear fruit indoors: but, there is a chance that smaller trees—like the lemon, orange, kumquat, guava, and coffee—could (provided they have enough light). I dream of the day when I could even think of building a heated greenhouse for these, but for now, a sunny window will have to suffice!

Either way, sprouting the waste from your groceries is a fine way to get free houseplants!

oooh that´s an amazing tropical fruit garden!
Let me tell you that the starfruit has trippled its size now…will photograph it in daylight and post up.
Also, you should definitely give mullberry a try (can be grown from seeds of store-bought)

This is a 30 foot tall eyeball. Smack dab in the middle of downtown Dallas. It’s by artist Tony Tasset, originally created for a temporary exhibition in Chicago — now part of an exhibition co-sponsored by the Nasher Sculpture Center and the swanky five-star Joule Hotel. (ahem, we are not staying there) An example of the private arts investment reshaping Dallas. You run into all kinds of this cool stuff all over town.

All Things Considered Host Melissa Block and Senior Producer Matt Martinez are broadcasting from member station KERA in Dallas, TX. Follow along as they report on big changes in this super-sized state.

Coastal Callas, Big Sur | California (by Michael Brandt)

I’ve been to Big Sur once. I was too stressed about potentially driving off the cliff to notice anything like this. We did see a group of dolphins, though.
