A Washington supermarket has an on-site contraption that converts food waste into liquid fertilizer. Organics alchemy, in action!
The 42 million pounds of food that Forgotten Harvest will recover this year is…a lot. The most, actually.
Piles of Indian wheat rotting by the side of the road? What a shame; what a disaster.
On Wednesday, I posted a picture of a mysterious bit of produce. Some people guessed correctly that it was…a carrot! But a weird one at that.
It was actually a volunteer carrot that soldiered through the winter. I found it in the one neglected raised bed in my yard, the plant miraculously poking through a hole in a planter, which had apparently provided shelter from the freezing temperatures.
But honestly–it tasted really good! I had some raw and some mixed into an Asian stir-fry.
Now, the turnip that wintered in the same raised bed…that was less tasty. Some more pics, of the most mutated carrot I’ve ever seen.
