The Journal of the American Medical Association has some astounding findings.
Turns out if people are awake longer they eat more. Go figure.
Weight gain was also linked to being sedentary. How amazing :-) is that?
We are stuck in a rainy, cool pattern. I just canned 35 quarts of green beans. I could not believe it. It was the first picking of 3 rows and there will probably be at least two more pickings. It will be tomatoes after that. The peach tree is loaded as well. I am doing the "3 sisters" method with my sweet corn. This is what you do: first, plant your sweet corn and when it is about knee high plant a vining bean that will use the sweet corn for support. I used white half-runners. You then plant some kind of squash between the rows. I used butternut squash on the first planting and spaghetti squash on the second two. The squash vines will cover the ground blocking out weeds and holding in moisture.
