“Does the statement “Large, persistent populations of genetically engineered canola 1 have been found outside of cultivation in North Dakota” scare you? A new study led by Cynthia Sagers of the University of Arkansas shows that 45% of roadside canola sampled contains genetically modified (GM) or genetically engineered (GE) traits. These plants have established populations that reproduce year after year, sometimes combining multiple man-made genetic traits. The GMO genie is very clearly out of the bottle.”—
I didn’t get jack done last weekend. Too much work for school, cleaning of house so wifey was happy, and I did some balloon animals for a friend’s dad’s campaign event who is running for Sherriff in this town.
Today though I did score a ‘gentle wand’ sprayer and new 100’ hose.
We did that in third grade on our fun day in science class! We also made ice cream with one bag filled with heavy whipping cream and a squeeze of our favorite syrup INSIDE of a larger bag with ice and salt. Just seal & shake until you have it!
I forgot all about that ice cream trick!! That is going on the list for the furture for sure.
No, just shake it hard as you can, not that fast is needed. You basically want the cream to hit the bottom of the jar like a car crash. It busts the fat cells free so they can combine. After 10-15 minutes(ish) you can pour out the buttermilk, rinse, shake a few more times, then you have butter. My kids are 9+10 so its pretty easy to do (although I did the rinse and ‘squeeze’ to get excess moisture out. Prevents mess if I do that).
You can also use a food processor I’ve read. I’ll try that next time.
Was at the store getting supplies for the chinchilla; both paper and cedar bedding, dust bath, hay and treats. We noticed that a) they were selling pinecones as chew treats for rodents and b) they also had ‘deluxe’ hay with dehydrated carrots (and other stuff) for nutrients and chewing.
So I went home and had the kids find a few pinecones and I dehdrated a handfull of baby carrots I had leftover from the kid’s lunches last week. Sliced into strips and they curled into dried carrot sticks. Our pet Dee seems to like the carrots and has done a little nibbling on the pinecone, and she has moved it around her cage to various spots.
