Episode 41 Loyalty Disaster

 

Ohio’s Chemical Valley A debate over good Jobs and Bad Health

Is the Concept that if you work for a company and get sick from you work the company will take care of you Valid? Or is it Misinformation Fed to employees to foster loyalty to the company.

Growing up in Rural West Virginia. I have seen my share of Loyalty Disasters.  Miners that sell their Body and Sole to the Mine to have their body destroyed and end up living in a tar paper shack with their oxygen mask going 24 hrs. A day Extoling the virtue of the good jobs the mine gives to good employees. The economic boost that comes to the local economy because of it. As the mines closed and the chemical plants moved to foreign lands. The social and economic aftermath that destroys communities is always blamed on greedy company owners. As it should. But one thing I have seen so often is the willingness for Appalachian workers to sell their health to the company store. And carry the company line to and early grave.

Treated like parts of a machine Appalachian workers are tossed aside like scrap. To watch as the company that they extoled the virtues of close declare bankruptcy and steal the money from the very programs they claimed would take care of the Appalachian worker whose body they used and destroyed. Often the programs are paid for with the workers money.

Living in a Food Desert

Growing up In West Virginia We had access to all kinds of local foods. Fresh Corn, Fresh Green Beans. Local Meats from Local Farms. It wasn’t uncommon to Know the Farmer that sold the Live Beef to the slaughterhouse, that sold the processed Beef to Johnsons Supermarket, where Oscar the Butcher Cut it up and packaged it, for my mom who shopped at Johnsons Supermarket accost the street from My child hood home.

But today I live in the same city. Access to Fresh Local fresh foods is diminishing to the point that obtaining fresh local food is once again becoming a Hunter / Gather culture.

Lets Talk about Saving seeds

Lets Talk about Saving seeds

zinnia-seed-photo

There are so many reasons why you and I want to save seeds. From the mundane to the profound. Saving seeds gives you the opportunity to create you own strain or variety of Mum. it lets you share in the Bounty of the surplus our garden gives us in so many new ways. That ripe Juicy tomato that you picked from the tomato plant that sprouted in your compost bed. To the Watermelon that Grew out from under the deck probably planted buy the Games played last 4th of July during the Cook out. And grandma’s mums she so lovingly doted and plants every year.

Saving seeds is easy. Most of the time all you have to do is go out and pick the mature seeds from the mums when the flowers wilt dry and droop. taking you time and selecting several dry flowers will provide large amounts of seeds. Seeds you can take home and store until it is time to plant again next season.

Some times saving seeds is not as simple. Tomato seeds can just be saved from the juicy tomato you sliced for your BLT. But doing it properly can increase your success rate. instead of me telling you how to do it and making this a very long post I will just link to a wonderful outline on Permaculture News Saving Tomato Seeds. Go check them out to get the Skinny on how to save Tomato Seeds.

Other times you will find opportunity’s as you take your daily walk. At the End of Mt Vernon Ave in my Home town is a wonderful display of Flowers. Installed and taken care of by a local garden club. This year they had the most Beautiful Zinnia’s Sky Blue and Large Flowers. I noticed Sunday that the flower heads had dried and were ready to drop seeds so I stopped and picked a nice large Seed head. I plan to add them to my flowers next year and I may go back for more. Zinnia and Mums are both very easy Seeds to harvest.

Don’t forget to save a few of your Best Performing Vegetable’s to save seeds from. they will be the ones that will be the Best for your garden aria next year and soon you will have your own variety of Tomato, Potato, Cucumber, Mum, and on and on that give you the best produce and flowers for your Garden.

And the best Part they will be yours you will be able to save money and pass them on to your Family.

Gardening Tips Catching Rain Water

Every year the spring rains come and turn everyone’s yards into Muddy Messes. Every one Curses the spring rains for the mess they create. I look at them like a shower after a long hard day. Renewed life the clean smell, the songs of the birds and the twitter of the tree frogs after a spring rain are enough of a comparison to how I feel after a shower to be dismissed. Our grandparents looked at the spring rains as a chance to fill the ponds recharge the wells and top off the cisterns. Continue reading

The Frugal Secret!

Nanny didn’t waste money but she wasn’t afraid to Spend it Either. she would Spend money on Big hams. Or that Huge Turkey. She knew The Frugal Secret!  Nanny was born during the years leading to the great depression. She had seen her fair share of hard times. It showed in how she cooked. She was an old time cook. The classic home maker that can walk into a bare kitchen and perform some kind of grandmother Voodoo that created a dinner from empty refrigerator and bare pantry shelves. I can’t count the number of times I came home to what I thought was an empty refrigerator complaining that there was nothing to eat!  Only to set down to a dinner table flush with Beans and Cornbread or Buttered Potatoes, Green Beans and Ham slices. This is a Skill that is Quickly disappearing in todays McMicrowave world. Join me as I tell you of The Frugal Secret! Continue reading
