food safety bill Hr 2749

anyone following this bill, any ideas about it ?

I am watching You Tube, looking for botoom line how it will impact us on a local level / national level, and when it will really possibily be approved? From the stuff I see on You Tube it seems to be close to being approved? I'm no expert, just reading and watching and a bit concerned.

The Pomegranate Tree

We moved into our home on Veteran's day of 2008. The yard was overgrown and the house was run down, but in fairly decent condition. The pomegranate tree was looking pretty forlorn out there in the middle and back section of the yard, having not been watered for at least four years, and with all the bushy undergrowth obscuring the beauty of the tree's trunk. There were actually pomegranates on it, not very many, and to me, not particularly tasty. Well one year later, the tree is flourishing.… Continue

Because everyone needs more banana bread

Good Morning!

Had a bit of a baking adventure this morning that has turned out well so I thought I would share it. I read several recipes about baking with sprouted wheat berries, and then sort of took off on my own this morning with the intent being banana bread. I don't bake in absolutes, so you may have to wing it a bit if you try this. As usual with my cooking, I've added all kinds of comments.

2/3 cup of sprouted wheat berries (plus a little more, since the jar was… Continue

Babysteps and Changes

I'm relatively new to this site. I'm relatively new to permaculture, sustainable living. We've wanted to, and we kept planning for that "someday" when we have the right property, "someday" when we have more room, "someday" when we don't have to ask permission for chickens and goats.

Sometime this summer we realized, that it was ok to start RIGHT NOW. Raised beds half full of desert concrete dirt spent the summer being layered like lasagna gardens, composting down, until a friend… Continue

This is an interesting difference between the marketing of different eggs - organic, free range, cage free, etc....

I'm seeing a pattern...

So I took a gardening class and then put in a garden.
Took the rainbarrel class, now I have a rainbarrel.
Took a tree class, bought a bunch of trees.
Signed up for a chicken class.....I see where this is going.....

Going for a healthier diet.

I have decided to try aspects of a Vegan diet and want to share my experiences here to help keep me on the path. It has been one week and I think I am getting the hang of it.

So here's my parameters -- this isn't necessarily a "by-the-book" vegan diet -- I'm making up some of my own rules to fit the lifestyle I am trying to achieve.

- Minimal to no meat products or meat bi-products.

- Minimal to no processed foods, within reason.

- Minimal caffeine (just… Continue
