Is lard healthy or unhealthy? I don’t know. What I do know is that lard was one of the not-so-secret ingredients our parents, grandparents, and so on used to make that wonderfully crisp fried chicken or those oh so flaky biscuits and dinner rolls.

When the headline said that Oregon’s Democratic governor, John Kitzhaber, had signed into law a corporate-backed bill overriding local counties’ ability to regulate their own food systems, Lisa Arkin was shocked.
“I can viscerally remember the day I looked at the headline,” she says. “It was such a deep feeling of disgust and disbelief. I couldn’t believe that any amount of money from outside corporations could convince our elected leaders in Oregon to abandon the democratic process in that way.”

As we are watching Winter Storm Titan, the Weather Channel’s latest creation, dump fluffy white stuff where our garden will be, it’s time to begin planting.
The growing season here in NW PA is a tad shorter than it is in N.TX. so we adjust. Some plants won’t produce anything if they’re not started yet, yes, I’m looking at you, tomatoes.
