    It's a trap! We're just slaves again!

    Saw this

    and realized we've been duped again. All this green propaganda was just a ploy to turn us from lazy desk slaves into fit field slaves again. We think we're starting a revival, but the government just wanted us to grow more food for them. :P
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    But growing your own food is like printing your own money.

    Just make sure you eat all the food you grow so *they* don't get any.

    Hey, I posted up a thread about this kind of thing not too long ago! Were I to have a yard, I'd certainly try mowing it with a scythe - they're terribly nifty things.

    In the meantime, I have an old sickle.

    We have an old sickle, too! It's definitely not as expedient or ergonomical for mowing our 3 acres of grass as a scythe is. We're actually looking at buying a scythe now, especially since Knifegill tends to kill most gas-powered lawn equipment (lawnmowers, weedwackers, etc. We're afraid to give him a chainsaw...). I guess he's just too much of a caveman!

    Although, for the $200+ we'd be spending on a scythe, maybe we should buy some sheep and a fence... except, our baby is due in September, and I'd rather focus on taking care of the baby rather than a sheep. One thing at a time, and all. I hear babies really eat up your sleep, mental-capacities, energy, time, and sanity like nothing else...

    Very good. Really exercise the obliques. And he gets the barefoot benefit.

    Just to think about that blade near my bare feet makes me shiver ...
    Why not just get a few rabbits, put them in a cage on low wheels and let them mow your lawn while you sunbathe

    Supposedly, you can't actually cut your own feet while wielding the thing. Now, someone else's feet/leg that just happens to be in the wrong place, that's a different story!
