HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY

I wanted to look up the history of Valentine’s Day to see if the history is like most holiday’s taken and ruined for the sake of selling stuff and it appears that while yes that is what the holiday means today prior to Hallmark, Valentine’s Day was always a day to show your love your devotion to them. Here are some interesting legends according to Wikipedia:

The Early Medieval acta of either Saint Valentine were expounded briefly in Legenda Aurea.[15] According to that version, St Valentine was persecuted as a Christian and interrogated by Roman Emperor Claudius II in person. Claudius was impressed by Valentine and had a discussion with him, attempting to get him to convert to Roman paganism in order to save his life. Valentine refused and tried to convert Claudius to Christianity instead. Because of this, he was executed. Before his execution, he is reported to have performed a miracle by healing the blind daughter of his jailer.

Since Legenda Aurea still provided no connections whatsoever with sentimental love, appropriate lore has been embroidered in modern times to portray Valentine as a priest who refused an unattested law attributed to Roman Emperor Claudius II, allegedly ordering that young men remain single. The Emperor supposedly did this to grow his army, believing that married men did not make for good soldiers. The priest Valentine, however, secretly performed marriage ceremonies for young men. When Claudius found out about this, he had Valentine arrested and thrown in jail.

There is an additional modern embellishment to The Golden Legend, provided by American Greetings to History.com, and widely repeated despite having no historical basis whatsoever. On the evening before Valentine was to be executed, he would have written the first “valentine” card himself, addressed to a young girl variously identified as his beloved,[16] as the jailer’s daughter whom he had befriended and healed,[17] or both. It was a note that read “From your Valentine.”

I don’t really know which is right nor do I care. I know I love my chocolates, a yummy dinner and an excuse to spend quality time with my love and our zoo of animals at home!! If Hallmark or St. Valentine or Cupid himself created it in my book it’s all good!

Now that being said please remember to keep your Valentine’s Day green!! Here are a few businesses that are sharing in that devotion as well!

The Paper Potter

The Paper Potter

The Paper Potter

It may not be spring just yet but I saw The Paper Potter during my V-day gift shopping and thought what a great Valentine’s Day gift or even for wishful spring thinking. The potter is made from FSC certified wood, which makes purchasing it even more worth it.
Soon you will be starting our gardens and instead of buying potters now you can make your own from paper that you were either going to throw away or I hope recycle. Once again the 3R’s: Reduce, Recycle & Reuse! By utilizing The Paper Potter you are making this years gardening experience even more rewarding by saving money, saving trees and adding one more step of sustainability to your experience.
If you participate in a community garden talk to the management and see if they would like to purchase multiple Paper Potters for the gardeners to use. If you are a teacher this is an excellent science project for your students to learn about gardening and sustainability.

THE PAPER POTTER PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

This ingenious device enables you to turn strips of old newspaper into biodegradable plant pots for seedlings.
Once you have hardened off the young plants, transplant them in their biodegradable paper pots without damaging their tender roots.
Children love making paper pots and this innovative and simple gadget can be used to teach an invaluable lesson about sustainable living.

Paper Potter Instructions:
1. Cut dry newspapers into strips (8cm x 57cm approx.)
2. Roll strip loosely around potter and roughly fold over excess paper.
3. Press potter onto base.
4. Remove pot & fill with growing medium.
5. Plant seedling or sow seeds directly.
6. Paper pot will biodegrade when transplanted to garden.

Pot is approx. 5 ½ inches high. Manufactured by Nether Wallop Trading Co. Ltd. Made in England. Made of FSC certified wood sourced from managed woodlands.
