jackson-zoe-dog-sunburnSummer is a great time to be active outside for people and pets too. While most people are good about using sunscreen on themselves and their kids, some might not think about the effects of the sun on their four-legged family members.  

After spending a day in the hot summer sun with Zoe, Jackson's newly-adopted and decidedly sun-averse doggie (see what I mean in photo), I got to thinking about puppy sun screen...

Roslindale Farmers' MarketWe went to a really great Farmers' Market this past weekend in Roslindale Village (MA). It was an urban setting (Roslindale, for those who don't know, is part of Boston), but it had a real country market feel. You know, friendly people, waggy tail dogs, good smells, homemade pie (more on that later).

Travilah OakWe've been on the road a while now, and I'm getting the hang of Pearl's Premium demonstrations and Whole Foods Markets. Each one is a little different: the Mt. Washington store in Baltimore is housed in an old brick mill building in a block of cute indy shops and nice spots ourside to sit and have some lunch or read a book... very cool!

The past week has been a blur!  We’ve met so many unique and helpful people in Kentucky and Ohio.  Along with lovely green spaces and a friendly atmosphere, we have found likeminded folks with an earth-friendly attitude. We even passed a store with something for everyone (see the picture for more insight).

As a landscaper with an interest in protecting our Earth and my clients, their pets and families, Pearl's Premium seemed like a perfect solution to reconcile my environmental conscience and desire for a lush, green lawn. 

A few months ago I was invited to join the talented team behind the scenes at Pearl's Premium to help spread the word about Pearl's Premium and sustainable lawn care.  I eagerly accepted.  After lots of prep Jackson and I have embarked on a 12 state Johnny Grass Seed tour of the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic region.

We are traveling in a low impact trailer that only reduces our gas mileage by one gallon per one hundred miles, self contained and budget-wise.  I look forward to meeting all of you and hearing what America has to say about truly green lawns.
