Click here to view the embedded video. File under ‘things we never knew we needed’… and are actually pretty sure we still don’t: this robot/hat/backpack contraption by Japanese ketchup kings Kagome will feed you a steady stream of tomatoes while you go for a run. According to the AFP “The Tomatan is a backpack that can be loaded with six mid-sized tomatoes —e nough, say the makers, to power runners through [last] weekend’s Tokyo Marathon.” Because, it turns out, tomatoes are really good at fighting fatigue. The downside? The contraption weighs in at 18lbs, so one might want to consider just packing a banana or two instead.

Comments Off on How to Maximize Your South-Facing Windows to Grow Food All Winter

As I write this, I’m chewing on a spicy little arugula  seedling that I grew from seed within the last couple of weeks. Considering that it’s hovering around freezing outside right now where I am, and we’ve already had a couple of snow flurries, I hadn’t expected to be chowing down on fresh greens unless I’d bought them from the grocery store, where they’ve been marked up exponentially as out-of-season luxuries. How did I manage to coax these sweethearts into growing, then? The answer is actually quite simple, and surprised me as well: south-facing windows.

How to Eat Your Lawn: Transform Your Wasteful Grassy Space into a Food Forest Garden

Comments Off on How to Eat Your Lawn: Transform Your Wasteful Grassy Space into a Food Forest Garden

Who ever imagined that lawns would go from epitomizing the American dream to embodying all manner of evil? Blaming both human and natural failings, many homeowners have embraced the idea of lawn-eradication, and the Food Not Lawns movement is growing on a daily basis. Lawns were originally cultivated by wealthy European nobles to show off all the land that they didn’t need for growing food, but in an era of droughts, climate change, and imminent food shortages, such wastefulness isn’t a trophy for the elite; it’s pretty much reprehensible.
