Keto is dangerous. Keto destroys your kidneys, Keto is too restrictive. Keto will give you nutrient deficiencies.
Yea I’ve heard it all. I wasn’t a believer in Keto until about five years ago. Actually, I’d never even heard of it until I stumbled across a documentary about it. I thought it was insane. You purposely eat fat?? You purposely cut out fruit and grains and beans, which are obviously healthy and necessary???

I have a bit of a crunchy personality strangely mixed with a healthy dose of skepticism, conservatism and gun ownership as I was raised by two scientists. Read More
I have sorely neglected this poor website. I had the amazing opportunity to get away from it all and spend a month touring europe and doing photography.
I started my trip in Ireland where I got to catch up with some old friends and then photograph a wedding. What an amazing experience. It was so similar to weddings here in America, but different in a lot of ways too.
After that, I took the train Read More
Diversify, diversify, diversify. That’s all us small farmers are told to do. And really it’s great advice, but maybe it’s bad advice too?
Throughout the country, there are giant farms with thousands and thousands of acres of ONE crop. Thousands of acres of corn or wheat or soy bean or alfalfa or almonds or whatever. But it’s ONE crop by itself.
Monoculture farming is a bad word amongst sustainable farmers. When you only raise one crop or one livestock, you mess up the ecological cycle of Read More
It’s 9:45am and the San Bernardino County Inspector was supposed to be here at 9:30am. Hopefully she won’t be much later. I’m very nervous. Not because I think there’s anything wrong with our kitchen, but because once you invite county onto your property, they now are looking around at everything. I might get approval for this Cottage Operations Permit, but I might get 10 other citations for who knows what else. I’m praying that it goes well. We’ve had county out enough times for our farmstay permit so hopefully anything they would pick on is already taken care of.
9:57… still not here…
Ok so the county inspector made it here Read More
Well I went back into county to turn in my application and fee. After sitting and waiting for an hour, I was finally able to turn in the application. The worker made a photocopy of it for my records and an extra photocopy of the back of the application where I could write and sign: “I agree to abide by the 17 restrictions.”
I have no idea why I had to write this because there is a place to sign on the bottom of the application that you agree to abide by the restrictions. *sigh*
They wouldn’t take my fee, which was probably a mistake and probably explains why I haven’t Read More
I make some kick butt caramel so I’ve finally decided I’m going to sell it. To do this in San Bernardino County, you have to either use a commercial kitchen or get a Cottage Industries Permit. While I have access to a commercial kitchen locally, why keep spending money to rent one when you can just use your own kitchen?
I wasn’t sure who to call first so I called Code Enforcement. The county worker had no idea what I was talking about and told me very confidently that I needed a Home Occupation Permit. Not so. I need a Cottage Food Operation Registration/Health Permit. This is very normal of Read More

The laying cycle of a chicken flock usually covers a span of about 12 months. Egg production begins when the birds reach about 18-22 weeks of age, depending on the breed and season. Flock production rises sharply and reaches a peak of about 90%, 6-8 weeks later. Production then gradually declines to about 65% after 12 months of lay. A typical production curve for a laying flock, showing changes in the level of egg production and in egg weight, over time, is given in Figure 1 (see pdf below).
There are many factors Read More
