OLD WAY: Select a desirable piece of fruit. Eat what you like. Throw the remains in the garbage.
NEW / OLDER WAY: Select a desirable piece of fruit. Eat what you like. Remove the seeds. Place the seed(s) in a pot full of soil. Add water. Compost the remains of the fruit. Allow germination to take place and nurture the young sprout to a reasonable size. Transplant in an appropriate location close to a sustainable water source. (Rinse and repeat)
Don't worry about planting more than you can use. Give extras as gifts to anyone that can find a place for them to grow. You'll be surprised how much more will come back to you.
Any other ideas?
I have no other ideas just now, Zen, but this is a great suggestion from you ... and so common sensical at that? Why don't more of us do these things! Thanks for your new group. =sapan=
