Re: safe food

Only 6 times a week :D?? That's a lot of meat... About the dioxin scandal: It doesn't matter if they are organically fed or not, it matters if they have been fed feed that contains contaminations. Germany is a big country on organics and they export a lot of animal feed. If you want to be sure, you ...

Re: Elderflower Cordial

I made 10 liters of elderflower cordial with a friend. However, when finished we realized we had no bottles, so we stored it in our winebucket.

Started bubbling like crazy overnight, we left it for a week and it turned into a crazy strong wine :P.

I haven't used SNUS since new years... badly craving it... Not so much that I need nicotine, I just miss the feeling.

Re: Why are 'you' self-sufficient-ish?

I was writing about el Nino when I was in 5th grade, before all the media hype about global warming... Always been a barefoot kind of girl. Always preferred homegrown or wild food, dreamt of a farm... Wasnt quite able to realize these dreams though, trying to be an adult was just so much work, study...

Re: One Straw Revolution by Masanobu Fukoaka

Alternating rice and winter grain on the same field is prob not possible in europe (def not for me), no, but growing veggies among your fruittrees, returning the fosfor you take away (such as returning all the straw to the grain field) and using chickens for pest control are all sound :P. I also lik...

Re: how liberating!

Easier by dogsleigh or snowmobile =). But sadly, we have no polar bears.... and I've only seen a polar fox from a great great distance. The hares are pretty cool though. Right now I'm in Kiruna, 300km away from the house on the map, it is above the "cultivation-border". You can grow rhubar...

One Straw Revolution by Masanobu Fukoaka

What can I say, it is a permaculture must-read. The art of doing nothing. Of superlowmaintance farming without plowing, tilling, pesticides, herbicides, promoting the plants natural strength and letting nature do what she does best =).

Re: how liberating!

Nice and warm out today though, -13,5 :D. And you are hoping to farm in that! :shock: What? Ice poles? -13 is nothing, it goes down to -35 easily :D. Good things about this climate: - The cold kills parasites and blight and such stuff. We can grow very sensitive potatoes up here for example. - Midn...

Re: what other boards do you read and think helpful

Yes 0=)... You should learn it!

I would love to find a similar version in english. I mean, if the Swedes can rustle up 23000 members from a 9 million population, there must be a world-wide forum with like... a million members?

Ish is nice but very small =).

Re: Psoriasis of the scalp

Only using conditioner (a light one for washing, a heavy one for conditioning) has helped me (they have to be silicone free etc). I use a shampoo without sls occasionally. I really like Faith in Nature Hemp conditioner, it is almost only plant extraxts =), and lots of good stuff for anti-itch like h...
