It is a quick roundup this week, I just don’t know where the time goes!!!

Nourishing Words - Growing Your Own.. ” Salad greens on pennies a day? In the middle of winter, in your kitchen? Organic, even? Yes, it’s possible. It’s even easy. So easy, in fact, that I’m challenged to understand why everyone’s not doing it.” Go to the link to read more from Eleanor Barron, “Writing at the intersection of local food, gardening, healthy living and sustainability. I live, learn, write, cook, eat and garden from my zone five Concord, New Hampshire home. Personal action can change the world.”

Jules Clancy Stonesoup from Australia is really growing on me and gave me some ideas for the soup I made this past week for Soup and Bread at The Hideout!.“Stuck in a breakfast rut. Some unusual healthy ideas for breakfast“. Her point of view, “I love food especially veggies. I have a degree in Food Science and am the author of 5 ingredients 10 minutes. Stonesoup is a weekly blog about fresh,healthy, delicious food.The fact that most recipes here contain 5 ingredients and can bemade in minutes is a bonus.

Ben Hewitt’s latest post is titled “Hungry“. Who is Ben? “ Ben was born and raised in northern Vermont, where he currently runs a small-scale, diversified hill farm with his family. He lives with his wife and two sons in a self-built home that is powered by a windmill and solar photovoltaic panels. To help offset his renewable energy footprint, Ben drives a really big truck. His work has appeared in numerous national periodicals, including the New York Times Magazine, Wired, Gourmet, Discover, Skiing, Eating Well, Yankee Magazine, Powder, Men’s Journal, National Geographic Adventure, and Outside.

His most recent book is Making Supper Safe: One Man’s Quest to Learn the Truth About Food Safety (Rodale). It was published on June 7, 2011. From dumpster diving, to the battle over food rights, to genetically engineered salmon and the interplay between humans and the bacteria they consume, Ben explores the untold story of food safety with humor and good-natured skepticism.”

Always I3 (interesting, informative and inspirational) to checkout Nourishing The Planet , NTP, their latest post is on the Farm Bill. as well as a post on “thinking of soil as more than just dirt”.
