    Okay, so when most people say (write, text, etc.) “potato tower,” they’re referring to some variation on that time-honored tower-of-tires method, in which one continues to heap earth or straw around a growing spud, using a mounting stack of tires to hold said earth or straw in place, thus allowing more and more new spuds to form along the original’s ever-lengthening stem. That method is not the subject of this post. It isn’t that I have nothing to say about the tire-tower; I do, oh, I do. In fact, I have a rant building on the near-ubiquitous nature of this method and its variations…

  • Greenhouse gases: New group of soil micro-organisms can contribute to their elimination

    21 Aug 2014 | 11:15 am
    The vast reservoir of carbon stored in Arctic permafrost is gradually being converted to carbon dioxide after entering the freshwater system in a process thought to be controlled largely by microbial activity. However, researchers say that sunlight and not bacteria is the key to triggering the production of CO2 from material released by Arctic soils.

    The effects of groundcover management systems and nutrient sources on soil organic matter, carbon and nitrogen concentration, and soil carbon and nitrogen sequestration has been evaluated over time in an organically managed orchard. Results indicated that organic cultural methods can significantly augment near-surface soil carbon and nitrogen contents, which will likely increase productivity of apple orchards in the Ozark Highlands and similar regions over a relatively short period time after establishment.

    Neuro-linguistic programming, or NLP, is a behavioral-modification technique used by a wide range of mental health practitioners, including psychiatrists, medical physicians, hypnotherapists, and general counselors. This psychological modality was invented and introduced to the public in the 1970s and continues to remain a popular tool for initiating positive change within individuals. The evidence that exists is not as abundant as the claims, making it a somewhat supplementary approach rather than a sole application for personal concerns.

    Despite the positive discoveries of Vitamin D over the past decade, many researchers are still unsure as to the extent of which vitamin D deficiency plays in disease development. [1] Many experts also disagree on whether or not supplementation or sun exposure is best, with many believing that natural sunlight promotes more balanced blood levels. Despite the barrage of research hitting the scene, organizations continue to differ on recommendations for vitamin D intake. Recent research suggests that upwards of 75% of the American population is Vitamin D deficient, a number that is far greater…

    Aluminum pervades our natural environment, making it practically impossible to avoid this element completely. Not only is it present in our water, soil, and food, but many of our cooking appliances and food packaging also contain aluminum. Conventional antiperspirants and antacids, products used by millions of people every day, contain aluminum. This metal has been linked to a number of neurological conditions, including Alzheimer’s disease, and some research has even linked it to cancer. As aluminum has become increasingly prevalent in our industrial civilization over the past 150…

The Marasmius oreades come up in two places in the yard, each in a wide curve that follows the arch of a tree root, each year that curve a bit wider, a few inches displaced from where it was the year before. They’re a small mushroom, delicate in appearance, in color, in flavor,…

I’m trying to come back after multiple surgeries and other medical anomaly (I’m beginning to feel like a medical anomaly myself) and bring the garden(s) back after years of neglect, and oy, but it’s a lot of work. Especially since the whole project (multiple projects, really) seemed so overwhelming that I couldn’t face it (them) and therefore got a late start in an early spring. However, progress is being made. An important point to remember, as I gaze at the mountain of incomplete and unstarted tasks,…

But years ago an Italian friend confided to me that only Americans were so hidebound as to think that it had to be made from those ingredients and nothing else. In Italy, she told me, pesto was made from all sorts of things. At the time, I looked at her askance. She and pesto might both be Italian, and I might pride myself on being openminded, but there were limits. Over time, however, I’ve gradually…

    Summer flatbread on grill In Block Island during the summer, there's plenty of sun and surf and long walks on the beach but aside from a decent bagel bakery not much in the way of fresh bread. So I usually take a small bit of sourdough starter and instant yeast on vacation to satisfy my bread-making itch. Then I make a big bin of dough and slice off pieces I can use during the next couple of days.Although I usually weigh my ingredients, I leave my scale at home, because it's one more thing to lug along on vacation. I figure I'll just wing it once I arrive. I did this time, measuring out…

    Screen shot from Borgen, episode 24 For the past two years, I've been watching Borgen, a Danish television series which tracks a female politician who rises to become prime minister. The series is quite entertaining and actually addictive, since the stong-willed but principled leader is someone you could relate to: Season 1 began with her riding her bicycle to Parliament. It deals with the conflict of work and home life, and all the intrigue of multi-party politics. I've only had access to Borgen online, at linkTV, careful to watch the shows in the two-week window after they air on cable.

Or, say, after getting caught in a warm August rainfall on a Sunday walk (hey, since when does it rain around here?). My beverage of choice for these times: a steaming cup of chai tea.There’s something endlessly soothing about the warmth and spiciness of chai tea. The heat of ginger and spices – cinnamon, cardamom, cloves and peppercorns – steeps with black tea to create a rich, spicy concentrate. Mix this…

Only a couple weeks left to get out there and drink in the summer, to make memories. They are seven and five, and for anyone that has or has had children of these ages, you probably understand why I feel that these ages are perfect. They love to be around my husband and me, yet are independent enough to do things on their own. All the hassles of tiny babes and toddlers are gone and we’re left to enjoy these perfectly sweet, intelligent, and hilarious tiny human beings.

I never understood why my aunt and grandmother would make such a fuss over picking ripe tomatoes and eating them right off the vine, and my great-grandmother used to plant 70 to 80 tomato plants a year and can all of it for later use. Now that I'm older, I have a garden of my own, and I finally understand what they were talking about.I've never had any success growing tomatoes in the past, but…

    I still remember the first time I decided to grill salad. Still in culinary school and just learning about layering flavors, my class was focusing on a duck confit salad, and that dish seemed very heavy for traditional greens. Yet I didn't want to go down the familiar path of a frisee salad. So, I wondered: what if I grilled some romaine? My thought was that the smoky, charred flavor would really complement the duck but not overpower it. Using duck fat and sherry vinaigrette as dressing, I gave it a shot, and it turned out to be a huge hit. I've been grilling salad ever since.Although I love…

But 1 quart jar stays in my tea cupboard because my husband drinks a cup of nettles infusion every morning. If you’ve ever brushed up against the stuff growing in the wild, you probably cannot imagine ingesting it. However, stinging nettles (Urtica dioica) is quite healthy, and to some, delicious.

    This article, How To Tenderize Beef With Baking Soda, was originally published at Natural Health Ezine. Have you ever noticed that when you eat at a Chinese restaurant, the meat is always so soft and tender? It seems like your knife just slides through it without any effort at all. A lot of Chinese recipes recommend tenderizing beef and other meat with Baking Soda. Salt can help tenderize meat, and since baking soda is made mostly from sodium, it makes sense that it can be used as a meat tenderizer. If you’ve got a particularly tough cut of meat or beef, and you’re looking to make…
  • What Does the USDA Organic Symbol Mean?

    This article, What Does the USDA Organic Symbol Mean?, was originally published at Natural Health Ezine. Seeing the USDA organic symbol on food products shows that the food is certified to be at least ninety five percent organically grown. Businesses that claim to produce organic foods must pass strict certification inspections in order to be approved by the USDA. The USDA symbol will also be stamped upon seed packets, foods in restaurants and business’s or farmers crops that claim to grow their food in an organic manner. Because the requirements are fairly strict on food providers that…

  • Cocobeet is a MUST-VISIT Organic Juice Bar in Boston

    Max Goldberg
    28 Aug 2014 | 11:08 am
    As a result of living in NYC but having grown up in Boston, I am quite aware of the difference between the two cities, in terms of the organic food and pressed juice offerings. NYC has a ton and Boston has very little. But with the recent opening of Cocobeet, ironically located between a Subway and Dunkin’ Donuts, it is an understatement to say that Bostonians are thrilled to have them there. “On our second day of business, we sold 270 bottles of juice and had to close our doors because there was nothing left to sell,” Co-Founder Onur Ozkoc told me. Just a short walk from…

    We have gotten several good pieces of news over the past few weeks. Most notably, GMO-labeling is now officially on the ballot in Colorado, and the vote will take place in November.     The USDA announced that it is cracking down on misleading organic marketers, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said that it will be phasing out genetically-engineered crops and will ban bee-killing pesticides on national refuges. Huge kudos goes to celebrity chef Jamie Oliver, who has publicly come out against the dangerous Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) agreement. If…
  • Gallup Poll: 45% of Americans Seek Out Organic Food, Other Fascinating Data

    Max Goldberg
    16 Aug 2014 | 12:38 pm
    Having been entrenched in the industry for several years now, I am quite aware of how popular organic food is in this country. Yet, the results of a new poll recently released by Gallup even surprised me. With organic comprising 4% of all U.S. food sales – nearly $35 billion – I was shocked to learn that 45% of Americans are seeking out organic food. But this isn’t just people of real means. 42% of Americans with a household income of under $30,000 are also seeking out organic food. The data from Gallup is absolutely fascinating and it was broken down by: ORGANIC FOOD…
  • Scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson Tries to Bully Us Into Thinking GMOs are Safe to Eat, My Response

    Max Goldberg
    12 Aug 2014 | 3:33 pm
    I have been contacted by numerous people over the past week about Neil deGrasse Tyson’s rant on genetically-modified food, asking me what I thought of it. Because this famed scientist raises his voice and appears completely annoyed by the question – most likely because he is asked it all of the time – don’t be fooled or intimidated into thinking that GMOs are safe to eat. They’re not. What Neil deGrasse Tyson says is that is that the food we eat does not have the same genetic structure that it did 10,000 years ago. True. He also says that it has been modified to…
  • Wednesdays at Whole Foods – Best Trolley Ever, Bigger Juice, Talking Shop with Oprah

    On the first Wednesday of every other month, I have a column called Wednesdays at Whole Foods. It showcases the most interesting news, products, store events, and happenings at the company. A MARKET ON WHEELS When Co-CEO Walter Robb first envisioned how Whole Foods Market could play an active role in improving fresh food access to underserved populations in this country, my guess is that trolleys were not on his mind. But thanks to an incredibly enterprising woman in Portland, Oregon named Amelia Pape, the company may have found its most important and unexpected vehicle (no pun intended) to…

    Sometimes spiritual epiphanies come after a struggle. Mine came after an argument with my husband. Without getting into too many details about our disagreement, the root of the argument stemmed from my frustration that my current family situation kept me from doing “God’s work.” As I prayed to God for guidance, he kindly spoke to […]

    Most of us know the story of Noah. We therefore know that the rainbow is the symbol of God’s promise that he would never again destroy the earth with water. However, did you know that there is a deeper Biblical significance to the rainbow? I did not know that either until I saw a very good video seminar by Truth […]
