Thursday Tid-bits from the ol' farmstead

Came across a few things on the ol' web that I thought I would throw out at ya all...

#1 - Canada Becomes First Nation to Officially List BPA as Toxic - Poisoning ourselves left and right or letting others do it to us...

#2 - Is Urban Gardening Getting More Creative? From Vertical Spirals to Lampposts, to Facebook - Gardeners everywhere, will we even need big mega farms 20 years from now?

#3 - Seed Sprouters: Easy to Use & Simple Designs - Cute!

And as usual one of Knobby's Acres recipes -
