Re: Tempeh

Tempeh is great. We make our own. You cook soybeans, then innoculate it with starter and let it do it's thing for 12 hours or so..

Re: old tyre recycle ideas anyone

We use ours for tire gardens. We have lousy soil but great compost. Growing in buckets and tires give us better growing soil and much better moisture retention that we can get in conventional garden beds.

News story: A lawn, a grandpa and jail time

We are from the southeast part of Ohio, in the US. We have 15 acres and grow a lot of our own food. We have 8 goats...
