What I'll be eating on March 10th, 2020

Hey everyone,


This is the strangest thing. March 10th 2020 will be my 28th birthday. What a coincidence, eh? So the big 2-8. I think I may be living in Toronto, or Ottawa, or some big-ish city at that time. I'll probably have a wh*** new batch of friends, depending on where I go; unfortunately most of my friends will be staying in Welland now, so I'll be separated from them. Maybe I could pay a visit to my friends and family back home on that day. I suppose on that day I'll…

ORGANIC SEED EXCHANGE

Just last night - I kid you not! - I was chatting with a friend about starting up an ORGANIC SEED EXCHANGE. We're going to start between the 2 of us and see how it goes. This will be a gradual process but it means: Supporting local, organic growers, co-ops and other organic produce sellers, sharing gardening knowledge, making friends :)



Join us - it's easy! Start saving all of the seeds from your ORGANIC (that is PESTICIDE FREE) fruit and vegies, dry them out and share them with your… Continue

Renton, Washington Food Security

I am very fortunate that, in my local region, the biggest problem with food security is not currently crop production. I live in a state that is rich with farming opportunities and healthy crops. I am lucky enough to get my fresh, organic produce delivered weekly from sustainable Full Circle Farm, less than an hour away from my home in Renton.



However, people who aren't in my tax bracket aren't so fortunate, even if they live in my… Continue

ACT2-Community Garden, Toronto

This is the second consecutive year that my wife and I are actively organic gardening in a local park, Christie Pits, downtown Toronto. The ground hasn't thawed yet, but we do have garlic growing over winter! Before we started, I had no idea you planted garlic in the fall like a tulip bulb.



Last year we had a 4' by 8' plot to grow anything we wanted, so we planted and raised Swiss Chard, Radishes, Onions, Lettuce, Tomatos, Pumpkins (got smashed by a jerk vandal), Zucchinis, Rosemary,… Continue

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ***tances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
