After attending FRED 2013 (Frederick Law Olmstead in Riverside Education and Design) symposium last month, and while there hearing what all-around gardening pro and native Berwynite Roy Diblik had to say about a few local prairies, I had to see for myself it it was true.
For several years now I have talked about doing it. Toyed with taking a class. I even sat through a YouTube video demo about "putting up" my home grown tomatoes. Even so, the idea of me home preserving the fruits and veggies I grow here hasn't come to fruition yet.
Mid-morning while out looking for butterflies, my spouse Kevin spotted an American Bald Eagle perched in a craggy tree in Jackson Park's Wooded Island, which is directly south of the Museum of Science and Industry.
