Happy National Agriculture Day and First Day of Spring!

It's National Agriculture Day and the First Day of Spring! All week, I've been posting blog entries to my Environmental Club's blog with agriculture facts. Check it out here.

For every person who has ever lived there has come, at last, a spring he will never see. Glory then in the springs that are yours.
