It can also be a lovely way to cultivate friendships with passers by….it could even be the start of a community growing group where you coordinate who grows what.

Why is food safety IMPORTANT?

Whoever consumes the food is protected from the risk of food borne illnesses.

The food we consume play a SIGNIFICANT role in our basic functionalities and hence the need to EAT HEALTHY and SAFE FOOD.
Startling Food Safety tips you may wish you'd have known long before now:
1. It takes four hours for bacteria to start multiplying.

2. Freezing only stops the growth of bacteria, but doesn't kill it; Cooking does.
3. It's harmful for a raw turkey to be kept non-refrigerated for more than 45 mins.

4. Fruits and Vegetables in the bag is a WRONG. It could lead to contamination.

5. RE-COOK leftovers left on the fridge after 36 hours.

For more on this, here are our 2 original papers.…
Title of the paper: “Leaf wounding triggers distant gene expression response of polyphenol biosynthesis in strawberry fruit.” Polyphenols are good. They activate the body’s defenses. e.g. resveratrol, quercetin & fisetin activate the Sirt1 defense enzyme against diseases & aging.

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.
Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH
