Since being introduced to Nourishing Traditions in December, I've been doing a lot of experimetation.
I'm always on the lookout for sales on organic vegetables at the natural grocery store.
The fridge is looking pretty full.
It would only take a little bit of effort to double all my recipies. It takes lot more effort to add a new food to the menu than to make more of something that's already on the list. I really enjoy providing these foods to my family, but I have to balance the time with my job.
I found a kindred spirit in this article: http://www.wildfermentation.com/econferm.htm. I'm starting to think about how to engage other families to share our resources.
- I could try to find a neighbor that something to share. Even if we only trade one food weekly, it could be a big win.
- I could move out of the suburbs to somewhere I can farm. I'd have to quit my job to make this work. Would be good to share this with some other families so that we can specialize & share.
- I could make everything 2x and try to sell the extra. However, I'm not really looking for a second job. Money isn't a problem; time is.
- Suppose I put a fridge in my carport and put extra food in there. Well-labeled. At your convenience, probably weekly, you drop by with a couple gallons of whatever you have just made, and help yourself to whatever is in there.
Anyone in the Bellevue/Redmond, WA, USA area want to share? Drop me a line.
