Is it possible to have a zero waste package free grocery store?

Brothers Lane Company of in.gredients thinks so!

According to Earth911, shoppers bring their own containers the first time, weigh and label the containers with its tare weight, which will be deducted at the cash register. The store will also provide compostable containers for customers who don’t want to transport their own containers; shoppers will be encouraged to reuse the containers before eventually composting them.

How cool is that? I hope we can get one here in the Kansas City area.

How To Choose The Perfect Ear Of Corn

It's the time of year when fresh corn on the cobb is available everywhere.
Local farm markets, trucks on street corners, and supermarkets.

When purchasing corn, look for tightly wrapped ears that look plump and feel full.
The corn silk should be dry but not rotting.  The more corn silk there is, the more corn kernels there will be!


Save Money And Build Your Own Rain Harvesting System

Saving money on water is one thing I'm constantly monitoring.   With the need to water pets, top off koi ponds and swimming pool, watering vegetable and flower gardens as well as laundry and bathing, our water bill can get expensive.

I've wrote about rain harvesting and using rain barrels before, but feel the subject is worth repeating and staying on top of new found ideas. 

How much rain does it take to fill my system?
Not as much as you think. It is easy to calculate how much rainwater your roof generates. The constant to remember is: 1" of rain will produce 625 gallons of runoff from a 1000 square foot roof, or 625 gallons per 1000 square feet.

Too much math for you? Check out this easy Rain Harvest Calculator. It will figure it for you in seconds.

Thanks to Homesteading Woman for the great video on your Rain Harvesting System!

iPhone Tip: Turning Off Auto Correct

I found the auto correct on my iPhone very annoying and even more annoying when I received a message from my husband that didn't make a lot of sense. (Uhhmmm, honey you really need to put your glasses on....please)

So I turned it off. It's simple, here's how:

Go to Settings,
Then to General

Scroll down and choose Keyboard

Then tap the grey button next to on beside "Auto-Correction".

That's it! Easy hugh?
