I sent this to our senator and several representatives after attending the rally this afternoon.

Let Tastebuds Trump Breath.... Eat Garlic

Let Tastebuds Trump Breath.... Eat Garlic

by Juliana Goodwin, Published in the News-Leader, Sept 1, 2010



This column won't help you get kissed, but it'll perk up your tastebuds. I am focusing on garlic this week, which is related to the onion.



Garlic's sugar content is high, so it burns quickly. The high sugar content is also what makes it wonderful when slow-roasted. Roasted garlic, if you've never had it, has a sweet, mild flavor and is wonderful… Continue

Free Pears for the Picking

A friend has two pear trees just outside Seymour that is loaded with fruit. Joel Randall hates to see them go to waste and would like for folks to pick them. They would make some lovely pear butter.

There are also some apples north of Seymour that can be picked up for $4 a bushel. They make delicious apple sauce. We canned a bunch of this.…

Heads up - SB 1619 will force people out of rural areas into cities

Folks, this is already accomplished in Singapore...the second highest population density in the world. The outcomes of this bill are anathema to the Well Fed Neighbor plan. One of our goals is to re-populate the rural areas with producers, not stack everyone up in high-rises. Please pay attention to what this bill is trying to accomplish and oppose it. …

Grow Your Own - For Local Consumption Only

Below is a system that I came across due to the help of Dale Jackson. If you haven't taken the time to watch some of his videos on this site, I encourage you to do so. It is well worth the time. Below is a snippet of a local growing operation in Wisconsin. It is good to see this vision is not just in the Ozarks.
Going forward we hope to have some help and info on setting up a sustainable greenhouse local food production operation on a small farm near you. We are looking for diagrams to…
