L MCMURTRY: No, no. I wasn't. I mean, it's only in the last few years that I've been looking back on that. Both my grandparents had - I mean, all four of my grandparents lived and died in the house that I was growing up in. And I had some relations with one grandfather. One of my grandmothers was substantially broken by the time I came into this world. And the other one wasn't broken. But she just sort of was through with children. I wasn't hurt at the time. I only reflected on that in the last few years that I really can't remember my McMurtry grandmother ever speaking a word to me. She must have. But I think it was more like, get out of the way or shut the door or something like that. Certainly, no stories ever came from her.
One thing that I learned from growing up in Hannibal, Missouri, a small town on the Mississippi River, is that, as much as we celebrate material success – which can sometimes be a wonderful thing, particularly in the face of hardship – the most important measure of one's success is the difference that you make in the lives of your family, your friends, your community, and your country.
Lupines can be started from seed, dormant bare-root plants, or potted plants, but seeds are easier to find and offer the broadest selection of cultivars. Be careful when buying nursery-grown plants, as lupines have fast-growing taproots that can become constrained if the plants are kept in their containers too long.
This exceptional annual variety of Texas bluebonnet was originally discovered growing in the wild near San Antonio. Also called maroon bluebonnet, it features distinctive reddish-maroon petals with white tips and bears more numerous flower clusters than its kin. Like most wild lupines, it is drought tolerant and thrives in sandy soil.
Like us, our plants love to bask in the sunshine. Using innovative greenhouse design, eco-friendly environmental controls, and sustainable growing practices, we cultivate some of the finest sun-grown cannabis in Massachusetts in our nearby state-of-the-art facility.
HEDRICK SMITH: One problem for Chesapeake Bay is that humans have drastically overfished the resources, especially crabs. But scientists have also tied the dramatic decline in fisheries here to man-made pollution and a growing phenomenon called "dead zones."
ROBERT F. KENNEDY, Jr., Waterkeeper Alliance: Well, I remember what it was like before Earth Day. I remember when the Cuyahoga River burned with flames that were eight stories high. I remember when- the Santa Barbara oil spill in 1969 that closed virtually all the beaches in southern California. I remember when they declared Lake Erie dead. I remember that I couldn't swim in the Hudson or the Charles or the Potomac when I was growing up.
HEDRICK SMITH: [voice-over] The terms are very specific. The big chicken companies own the chickens, supply the feed, dictate the growing regimen, do all the processing. They own it all- except the chicken waste.
