Man I wish I had that hook-up. I could really use some redwood to make some nice things. Stuff is pricey.

Rochester Colonial puts a cart out a couple of times a week for people to help themselves. There's a lot of great wood there to be had. Firring strips..etc. but the stuff is the real big deal. Cuz dudes can"t resist me! ;)

I reccoment a bow and arrow ... quiet and there is no arrow shortage. If PETA gets made ... you can always say you were aiming at a target and hit the woodchuck by mistake.

from WorldWatch, all the tree huging liberals can now have dysentary and typhoid;let the trichinosis begin again...

Real organic agriculture: Using human waste as fertilizer

The other day, I got some funny looks from a journalist who was interviewing me for an upcoming series on World Food Day. She asked me to list some of the ways I thought world hunger could be reduced. In addition to pointing to the need for better distribution of food and other resources, I gave my standard spiel about growing more food in cities. About half of the world’s population now lives in cities, which makes growing food there not just a hobby for wealthy urbanites, but an essential step in improving the health of the urban poor. But what made the journalist look askance was my description of how exactly urban farmers in some parts of the world are fertilizing their crops: with human manure and urine.

It may be hard for some of us to stomach, but much of the food grown in developing-world cities is irrigated with waste water. According to the International Water Management Institute, the reason is very simple—water from sewage systems is a low-cost, nutrient-rich source of irrigation for the urban poor. As a result, worldwide, 3.5 to 4.5 million hectares of land are irrigated with poop and pee. And while this sort of “waste” water can contain a whole range of pathogens, farmers can learn to use it safely. In fact, a Finnish study released earlier this week found that using human urine for irrigation can slightly increase plant growth (they used cabbages) and does not affect the nutritional value of the crop. In other words, urine can replace costly store-bought fertilizers and produce nutritious, organically grown food.

Although farmers have used human waste as fertilizer for centuries, cities and governments have more recently looked down on the practice. But in countries like Ghana, officials do not have the money or infrastructure to provide alternatives. In Accra, for example, 200,000 people a day eat salad from land irrigated with urine and human manure. But while this helps provide these folks a diversified diet, it also gives a sense of how many people may be at risk from polluted water. Educating farmers on how to grow, wash, and prepare urban food safely and educating policymakers about the agricultural and economic benefits of human waste will help ensure that millions of urban dwellers don’t go hungry.

"urban farmers in some parts of the world are fertilizing their crops: with human manure and urine."

Last time we were in Downtown Rochester on a warm summer morning it smelled like this practice is already in effect.

Good idea. I thought about using a crossbow, but the law allowing their use for hunting has expired! I fell bad for all the guys that ran out and bought them for hunting and now can't use them except for target.

I decided to attempt to put my tomato plants in this weekend. I purchased 12 of the Fourth of July ones. They are so sweet that I donMt want to put in any other variety. I may put in a couple eggplants too. But I think there will be no further threat of frost. Hope I'm right!

Why would I go to all of the work planting and working in a garden? With all of the free food cupboards & EBT. It costs a hundred bucks to get my nails done and I am not about to break one working in the dirt.

Mine are all in but I have covers for them and can heat if necessary.
I changed my mind. Lol! Waiting. Have them all lined up in the window sill. They're nice and warm there and are getting plenty of light.

You can still use them on nuisense animals that do not have a hunting season.
