  • I'm tempted . . .

    I was out stirring my compost the other day. I had a big heap of two-day old cut grass to incorporate into the pile, and it was a hot, hot day. When I dug into the freshly cut grass, it was really hot at the core, and around the core, the grass had turned from bright green to yellow-brown, and it was liberally threaded with white mold/fungus. Some of the grass blades were spotted with dots of white. I was tempted to chow down a big mouthful.

    It didn't smell bad, just kind of earthy. Not like a pile of rotting garbage can contents at all. The best sauerkraut I ever made grew similar-looking white spots on the top layers, but underneath those layers, it was delicious.

    Do you suppose I'd give myself a bad case of poisoning if I ate some? My dog has no doubts about eating compost, but then he's also fond of poop . . .

    I'd like to improve the biodiversity of my microbiome. Something that can break down grass seems like it would be a good addition.

    You were tempted to eat mouldy grass?

    Are you bored?

    Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.

          Nah, it makes sense. As much sense as eating all the other rotten stuff we love. Think sauerkraut, etc. I wouldn't do it without knowing in general what bacteria you are ingesting first.

            except that sauerkraut is cabbage, which we can digest. we don't have rumens, we can't digest grass. even if there's mold on it.

              If we ingest the foreign digester with the digested, then we may actually obtain nutrition. And if some of those bacteria can establish themselves, a person could - barring a thousand reasons it's impossible, if you can name them - become able to digest grass to meaningful degrees. Yeah, it's a little out there, but it's hard to say it can't ever work. If round-up ready bacteria can set up house, then why not grass-digesting critters, too?

                  I wonder if it's hard for people who grow up in food deserts to acquire these bacteria.

                      According to this, rotten grass is bad for horses - Why can't horse eat mowed grass

                        i'm pretty sure there's a difference in composted materials and fermented materials

                        so my professional recommendation is do not eat the compost, it's not being preserved with salt and bacteria, it's melting
                        beautiful
                        yeah you are

                        Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

                          Yeah, there's all sorts of mold. Like aflotoxins and black mold you just don't want in your body.
