Fermenting Sauerkraut, January 15, 2012


The other day I started a new batch of sauerkraut and finally got tired of moving it into the sink every time I pack the rig to go into town. This little shelf restraint solves that problem nicely. The 'kraut can stay put.

Now to add a couple more shelves... someday - maybe - it only took 5 years to add this restraint.

We Are Clearly a Species Worth Saving

Our world is entering a time of profound and perhaps catastrophic change. My hope is that by getting people to care about and learn about what is in their backyard, they can be made to realize that while it seems like we are destroying the planet in out greed and excess, what we are really destroying is ourselves. The planet and life in general has dealt with catastrophe many times before. Cataclysm on Earth is a creative time and evolution can handle it. Culture is much more fragile and we as individuals are more fragile still. I think that it is time for people to come to terms with the fact that our own behaviors put humanity at risk. While people have always done atrocious things, I believe that we are a species capable of beautiful, amazing and important things as well and we are clearly a species worth saving.
