It seems so sad to just throw your fresh Christmas tree out with the trash. Always one for creative recycling, I've compiled this list of 20 Crafty Recycling Projects You Can Make With Your Christmas Tree.
We live on a farm in Southwest Iowa. Our farm fields have underground springs and rocks are constantly coming to the top and so we have to go and pick up the rocks out of the field in
the spring before planting or in the fall after the harvest. All of these rocks have come from our fields.

I really like this. I also have a rock garden made with native stones/ rocks and live on a
farm. Rhonda does not pick up the rocks to improve her garden. She is getting them out of the way of planters in the spring and combines at harvest time. Most farms that are located in an area near where the glaciers began to recede will forever find rocks in their fields. Near us is a Moraine State Park. According to the dictionary a moraine is a mass of rocks and sediment carried down and deposited by a glacier, typically as ridges at its edges or extremity. We also have glacial till Road nearby. Farmers are not too fond of stones and rocks. It is so great to see such a beautiful use for them.
What is this plant? My husband attended a banquet today and these were used for the decoration. Apparently the sponsors didn't want them back because he came home with 3 of them. I love the color and lushness. Is it Kalanchoe?

You got it right, kalanchoe. I have used them to have a bright spot on the kitchen table. They
don't seem to mind that I don't have a lot of light there. But, I am sure being a succulent that it probably would love to be in the sunshine.
