Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Vegetables the quick, dirty way
Maine Sunday Telegram - 4/26/2009.
By Tom Atwell – Everybody seems to be talking about vegetable gardening this year. With all of this new interest, new gardeners need enough information to do the job right. I write a lot about Nancy and me growing vegetables in our garden, and sometimes about growing specific vegetables at home. But after some reflection, I realized that I had never written a basic column on how to create a vegetable garden. Instead of writing off the top of my head, I decided to attend a "Grow Your Own Organic Garden" class sponsored by Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association.
Swine-flu outbreak linked to Smithfield factory farms
Grist - 4/25/2009.
By Tom Phillpott – The outbreak of a new flu strain—a nasty mash-up of swine, avian, and human viruses—has infected 1000 people in Mexico and the U.S., killing 68. The World Health Organization warned Saturday that the outbreak could reach global pandemic levels. Is Smithfield Foods, the world’s largest pork packer and hog producer, linked to the outbreak? Smithfield operates massive hog-raising operations Perote, Mexico, in the state of Vera Cruz, where the outbreak originated.
Parsnip cake gets to root of sweet
Bangor Daily News - 4/25/2009.
By Sandy Oliver – Not everybody likes parsnips but my bet is that anyone will like this parsnip cake. Some nice reader whose name became separated from the recipe shared this almost a year ago. Many thanks to you, whoever you are.
From cold hardy seeds come salad days
Bangor Daily News - 4/25/2009.
By Janine Pineo – It’s not even May and I feel like I am running late. Maybe it’s because it’s spring. Maybe it’s because of the weather. Maybe it’s because the past couple of years I barely got the garden planted before the summer solstice. That would be in June. Late June. Here it is just late April and I am itching to get things planted. I already have two small beds prepped with compost and fertilizer.
