On the Cincy Locavore listserv I spotted this question:

Hey Everyone,

I put a post on our blog today about buying local over organic when you have to choose. I thought folks on this list might be interested, and I wonder if people agree with my current assessment.

Here is the link.

Any comments - here or on the blog - would be great!

Thanks,

Just when I thought I’d shift my focus from organic and conventional produce a new study in the
Journal Pediatrics associates exposure to pesticides and cases of ADHD (attentiondeficit/
hyperactivity disorder) in the U.S. and Canada. Once again my friends, my tried and true
blueberry may be an accomplice in horrendous acts.

Deer Preventer from Ray Arlinghaus

We use the following: You can ratio it down for a smaller area (This will protect a two acre field)

1 Dozen raw eggs (deer can't stand the odor)
1 tsp salt (acts as an emulsifier)
1 tbls white vinegar (acts as an emulsifier)
15 drops mint oil (enhances the egg odor -- for the deer)
15 drops oil of rosemary (enhances the egg odor -- for the deer)

Fido’s Farmers’ Market Primer Vol. 1 by Mel Bussey, Certified Dog Behavior Consultant

The Oxford Farmers’ Market is a fantastic way to spend a Saturday morning. The smells of the fresh produce, fragrant soaps, and dried herbs . . . the eye-pleasing array of colorful fruits and vegetables . . . the decadent pastries . . . the socializing . . . all make it something worth getting up early for. But humans aren’t the only fans of the Farmers’ Market -- many dogs enjoy the outing as much as the people do!

How do you know if your dog is a good candidate to take to the market?
