"He who knows what sweets and virtues are
in the ground, the waters, the plants, the
heavens, and how to come at these
enchantments, is the rich and royal man."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

What the World Eats in a Week:

A Dollar A Day! $1/person/day

A Dollar A Day!  $1/person/day
We were blown away by all the Coke and other multi-national labels in the hungry planet video clip above that seemed to permeate the tables and kitchens all over the world! It would appear us Earthlings can't live without our sugar water (or make that high fructose corn syrup water). Our backdrop is the only Pepsi you'll see in this month's photos. Aleli has nicknamed this old half of a tin sign, " Food Shortage".

I'm a Pickin', I'm a Grinnin'

Today's activities included some afternoon pickin'. We are finding that a lot of our leisure time is directly related to our experiment. Pulling apart giant sunflowers to get the seeds, harvesting fruit, gardening, and much more... The kids "DIG" it!

Palm -o- Granite

We found out later that this pomegranate should be harvested later in the year. They should be red and almost bursting out of their skins before picking.

on to oranges......

and acrobats

and Olympics!

Julian takes his pickin' and runs....

and keeps running......

Move over oranges, make some room for baby....

Kai volunteers to carry the basket. With a big grunt, he estimated the weight at 20 pounds!

Such a treat to see this undisturbed nest. We left this orange for the birds. This was a great opportunity to teach the kids about respecting nature and honoring balance.

In the evening we diced up some tomatoes from the garden and grilled up some turkey that we purchased on a 2 for 1 offer. Some organic corn from our mega Costco bag gets cooked up (Indian style) add some butter and brown. We wash it down with the best glass of orange juice on the planet earth!
