"Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, you've heard a lot here today and I won't try to go back over it all. But you have to go back in that room and make some decisions and there is one thing I want to make very clear to you before you do. I'm not trying to convince you that you should like what Larry Flynt does. I don't like what he does. But what I do like is... that I live in a country... where you and I can make that decision for ourselves. I like that I live in a country where I can pick up Hustler magazine... read it if I want... or throw it in the trash, if that's where I think it belongs. Or better yet I can express my opinion by not buying it. I like that right. I care about it. And you should care about it, too... because we live in a free country. We say that a lot, but sometimes we forget what that means, so listen again. We live in a free country. That is a powerful idea. That's a magnificent way to live. But there is a price for that freedom, which is that sometimes... we have to tolerate things that we don't necessarily like. So go back in that room... where you are free to think whatever you want to think... about Larry Flynt and Hustler magazine. But then ask yourselves if you want to make that decision for the rest of us... because the freedom that everyone in this room enjoys... is, in a very real way, in your hands. If we start throwing up walls against what some of us think is obscene... we may wake up one morning and realize... that walls have been thrown upin places we never expected... and we can't see anythingor... do anything. And that's not freedom. That is not freedom. So, be careful. Thank you."

Depends on what you like to eat. You can produce a lot of produce out of containers. I had 2 earthboxes on a deck last year with german giant tomatos and they grew 8' tall out of those little pots. I had used other containers to build privacy walls along the edges of the deck with peppers (cayanne), herbs and broccoli.

I'm doing my first paste tomato experiment. i planted 36 San Marzano Redorta and i want to see how much sauce I will get.

I'm following the pruning plan of Lee Reich [link to www.finegardening.com]

The plants will be spaced 20" and the rows 4' The trellis will look like an "A" frame. I'm gonna use PVC and have to make it this week as the plants are over a 12" so got lots of work to do.

dry aged beef is where it's at. Before refrigeration this is how it was done. Let a whole rib eye section hang uncut for a month. It will grow a good bacteria (if you do it right) then when you're ready to eat a steak you cut one off and trim all the 'hairs' off the outside. One of the most flavorful and tender steaks you can have. The process breaks down the connectivity tissues so the longer the better. Most high end steak houses will age 2-4 weeks.

But you can also use the old fridge from the link to do ham curing and sausages as well.

There is a great book called "The Art of Charcuterie" you should check out.

Any tips on good vegetables to grow for someone who lives in a Multi-Family housing situation?

Got more deck and patio space than I know what to do with but zero yard that I can plant it.
 Quoting: Traverse

For the tomato lovers,

I've been growing 4 strains the last couple years, when I started realizing how fragile our system is, that are very nutrient dense.

Doublerich - has as much Vitamin C as an orange (if you can't grow citrus this and strawberries will suffice)

Caro Red/ Carorich - has 10x the vitamin A as the average tomato.

Indigo Rose - a small dark blue almost purple tomato that is loaded with antioxidants.

Tangerine - loaded with betacaratines and lycopene.

I figured I might as well grow the most nutrient/vitamin packed stuff I can just in case.

Re: GLP Recession Proof - Summer 2014 Planting Season
I'm doing my first paste tomato experiment. i planted 36 San Marzano Redorta and i want to see how much sauce I will get.

I'm following the pruning plan of Lee Reich [link to www.finegardening.com]

The plants will be spaced 20" and the rows 4' The trellis will look like an "A" frame. I'm gonna use PVC and have to make it this week as the plants are over a 12" so got lots of work to do.

nice info

For the tomato lovers,

I've been growing 4 strains the last couple years, when I started realizing how fragile our system is, that are very nutrient dense.

Doublerich - has as much Vitamin C as an orange (if you can't grow citrus this and strawberries will suffice)

Caro Red/ Carorich - has 10x the vitamin A as the average tomato.

Indigo Rose - a small dark blue almost purple tomato that is loaded with antioxidants.

Tangerine - loaded with betacaratines and lycopene.

I figured I might as well grow the most nutrient/vitamin packed stuff I can just in case.

when a country is greatly disoriented —as it is currently in America with regards to polarization on many issues— that it’s easy for the Government —and other powers that be— to manipulate the public with lies and deceit.

It’s specifically designed to control the masses by generating and perpetuating confusion. in the past the truth about certain national incidents were not found out and revealed to the public for years. Now, thanks to the internet, it takes only a few months to discover the policies and activities of our Government and mega-corporate empires —that are criminal to say the least.

"Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, you've heard a lot here today and I won't try to go back over it all. But you have to go back in that room and make some decisions and there is one thing I want to make very clear to you before you do. I'm not trying to convince you that you should like what Larry Flynt does. I don't like what he does. But what I do like is... that I live in a country... where you and I can make that decision for ourselves. I like that I live in a country where I can pick up Hustler magazine... read it if I want... or throw it in the trash, if that's where I think it belongs. Or better yet I can express my opinion by not buying it. I like that right. I care about it. And you should care about it, too... because we live in a free country.

Good thread.

I have small gardens as I lack the time now to tend to larger ones these days (oh thank you fucking economy for this - this is another long story).

I have had laying hens for years and collect their eggs. If I could I would live off of what is out of my garden and eat the eggs (I do not kill animals as I refuse to it sickens me). My brother also fishes from time to time so he gives us his extra catches. As to meat, I could give it up all together no problems. Meat can go through the roof in price I don't give a shit I will buy much less of it and replace it with other alternatives.

It is not just the meat that keeps going up it is everything.....
