So Stephen and I are attempting to move beyond our frozen burritos and ramen noodles. Such that even when I saw Ramen noodles at 12 for a dollar at that crazy Macey’s sale last week, I left them alone to be grabbed by the next passerby willing to gain no nutritional value to his diet 12 times for a buck. We’ve improved substantially making whole-wheat bread, eating more fruits and vegetables . . . but still it’s been an interesting transition. I am not one who loves to cook, but I do enjoy eating the food that I have made (even if it is in a breadmaker). Not because it's more fresh or tasty, because quite frankly I'm not that particular when it comes to food. Rather, I enjoy fighting the system. It's an act of rebellion. Now whether or not this system I'm fighting is capitalism and as Marx would call the alienation from our labor, or if I'm rebelling against modernity and our false ideas of efficency I'm not quite sure. Anyway, the consequence of this sudden, almost teenage revolt, has been a sudden interest in square foot gardening and yurts.
The idea of square foot gardening that Mel Bartholomew, a retired engineer, came up with and has been used to save time, water, and space in gardening.
Sorry but if you want a lot of fun you should google "earthships"
