Sharing Our Rain

At the start of the day, all the crops were still in the ground
At the end of the day, all dead plant material cleared out,
cover crop seed spread and mulch on top.
(Note the rubberized rain suits!) 
"This group is full of talkers," an HP employee noted during the snack break of our Friday morning work party.  We had some of our solid HP volunteers who've been coming out all season (Ray, Yvonne, Shawn, Denise), but this particular work party was also full of folks from the HR department.  So yes, this was a more talkative work party than usual.  I'll attribute that to the fact that HR folks work with people and to enjoy working with people generally you have to know how to get along and communicate with them which can lead to chatting!  The reason I'm focusing on this aspect of the group is that on Friday morning it was POURING.  Not just the normal Oregon drizzle, but "get the bright yellow Cap Cod fishermen rubberized rain suits out" type of rain.  When it is those kind of conditions, it is good to be able to talk because it can distract you from the fact that your feet are wet or the uncomfortable feeling of being soaked through to your undergarments....

So that is what Mama Nature provided on the last HP work party of the season.  HP employees have been visiting the garden on a monthly basis since April of this season (they helped out last year too!) and each of the prior work parties was beautiful.  As we cleared and chopped up the beds of Solanaceae crops (tomatoes, eggplants, peppers, tomatillos), the rain softened the ground for us and then helped water the cover crop seeds we planted in the cleared space.  Now my only hope is that the roving packs of ducks haven't eaten all the seed!

Harvesting potatoes!
Thanks HP for committing to scheduling one employee work party a month (and for braving the rain this time around)!   Knowing I can count on your hard work in the garden makes my job easier and the more folks we have to collaborate on this project, the more healthy, local food we can provide to people in
Harvesting the last of the melons
need.  We look forward to seeing HP employees in the garden next season!

The Food Allergy Herbal Formula-2 (FAHF-2) Laundry List

So in all the time I've been writing about our experience with FAHF-2, I have never done a comprehensive post with all the links/info I've found over the years. Consider the situation rectified! I'll add to this as I find new sources. If you have good ones, please feel free to add them to the comments as well.

Liberal, Overbearing, New Age, Alternative Medicine Food Allergy Moms

My mom called the other night.

"I talked to your cousin Donna last night. I told her she should call you. She's into a lot of the same stuff you're into."

"Um...what stuff would that be, Mom?"

"You know...all that stuff about the bees and GMOs and vaccines, honey. I told her you knew a lot about it and would be happy to talk with her."

YIKES! Since when did having a kid with food allergies automatically qualify me for the willing-to-accept-every-random-theory club?

As you guys know, I do a lot of reading and I have come to think there may be something to some of the alternative theories out there, particularly around pesticides and antibiotics killing off symbiotic gut bacteria. But I've also spent 25 years of my career firmly submerged in Western medicine and my mother knows this. So what the heck happened here?

A week later, I wondered it all over again as I read this article on Slate. It's apparently debunking an Elle magazine story that link…
