Why Compost

Why Compost?:

I have been gardening in one form or another for nearly twenty years. In those years, I haven’t always used compost, but during the ones that I did, I had a much more successful garden.

Why Compost

A freshly dug garden that doesn’t use compost might do well the first couple of years, but if you continue to not add nutrients to the soil you will see a sharp decline after the third year.

Your vegetables will be shorter, and they will die quicker than what they had in the past. This is because the nutrients in the soil have been used up, and the vegetables aren’t getting enough food to help them grow.

Adding compost to a garden will give your vegetables what they need to grow bigger and stronger.

Artificial fertilizer may help, but I have never liked it. As much as I wash my vegetables, I just can’t get the idea out of my head that when I eat the vegetables from my garden, I am eating the chemicals that were sprayed on them as well. It is unnatural, and if nature intended us to use artificial fertilizer in our gardens, we would have artificial fertilizer trees. Also, the byproducts from artificial fertilizer factories can’t be doing much to help our environment.

I have bought bags of compost from the store. They cost anywhere from $2.50 to $6.50 per forty pound bag. A good sized garden can take up to 30 bags easily. This might not seem like a lot, but in today’s economy I’m looking to save money wherever I can. In fact, it’s one of the reasons I increased my garden size, to save money on food.

When you make your own compost, you are learning and gardening the way our ancestors did. It is the way that nature intended us to fertilize our crops, and you will get bigger and better vegetables from your garden, I guarantee it.

I love gardening. When I till the earth, plant seeds, and water the plants I can see the fruits of my labors springing up from the Earth. When the vegetables are ready to be eaten, it’s with a sense of pride they are prepared. Making a compost pile and adding it to your garden is an important part of the process. If you are using artificial fertilizer you are adding to our pollution problem, and if you are just buying fertilizer you are wasting money. If you are using no fertilizer at all you are draining the nutrients from your soil. Making your own compost pile just makes good sense.Why Compost? I hope we’ve answered that for you!

Who Makes Hybrid Cars ?

Who Makes Hybrid Cars?:

You may have heard about Hybrid cars and you are wondering where you can find them for sale. After all, to someone not familiar with cars may think that the term refers to a manufacturer or a particular brand model.

The truth is the term hybrid car refers to an automobile that is powered by both gasoline and electricity. Hybrid cars have been around almost as long as cars have existed, but they really didn’t catch the public’s eye until about ten years ago. So who makes hybrid cars?

who makes hybrid cars

Toyota Hybrids

who makes hybrid cars

The best known manufacturer of hybrid cars is Toyota. When Toyota unveiled the Prius over a decade ago, it was billed as the future of automobiles.

It was expected to be so popular that other manufacturers would soon follow suite, and gasoline powered engines would become a thing of the past. This still might prove true, but it hasn’t happened yet.

One problem with the original Prius was that it severely lacked power and occupant space. It didn’t help that dealership owners, who would never pass up a chance to earn a few extra bucks at the cost of alienating the public, would charge as high as ten grand over sticker price.

For the most part, the public viewed it as a gimmick car with an unproven technology that would cause them problems later on down the road. Ten years later has shown it to be a good reliable car, and it has paved the way for the hybrid versions of the Camry and Highlander that are one the market today.

How Cool is This!!

 

Honda Hybrids

who makes hybrid cars

Honda Motors saw the potential of a hybrid car market, and put out the Insight shortly after Toyota came out with the Prius.

The Insight was also an underpowered three door hatchback that was wanting for occupant space. It really didn’t differ too much from the Prius, so it did just about as well.

These cars were both bold steps in innovation, and they led to outstanding hybrid cars on the market today. Unlike its earlier version, the Insight now offers 5 doors. Honda now also produces the Honda Civic Hybrid.

Ford Hybrids

who makes hybrid cars

Ford jumped on the Hybrid car bandwagon after the gasoline price spike in the mid 2000s with the Ford Escape Hybrid.

Finally, there was an SUV that gets good fuel economy. It had plenty of zip, passenger room, and cargo space.

Sadly, dealers charged over sticker price in these early days. It seems the compulsion to make a few extra bucks at the expense of the environment made no distinction between import and domestic dealers.

Thankfully, those sad days are long behind us. (At least on Hybrid cars they are). The Escape Hybrid led the way for the Fusion Hybrid, which is one of if not the sharpest looking hybrid cars on the market today.


These aren’t the only manufacturers that make hybrid cars, but they are the most famous. General motors has a few hybrids. In fact, they offered a hybrid Buick way back in 1972! The answer to the question “Who makes Hybrid cars?” is “almost everyone who produces cars.”

If you are interested in a model that is not listed here, simply type the word hybrid next to your favorite manufacturer into a search engine, and you will see what kind of hybrid car that particular manufacturer produces. I hope now you have a good idea of who makes hybrid cars!

What Type of Vegetarian are You?

by Suzie Morales (New York City, USA)

Delicious vegetarian cuisine ingredients!

Delicious vegetarian cuisine ingredients!

“What is a Vegetarian?”According to Wikipedia – “Vegetarianism is the practice of following a plant-based diet including fruits, vegetables, cereal grains, nuts, and seeds, with or without dairy products and eggs. A vegetarian does not eat meat, game, poultry, fish, crustacea, shellfish, or products of animal slaughter such as animal-derived gelatin and rennet”.

“These people don’t follow Wikipedia!”Many people think of Vegetarians as one large group that just doesn’t eat meat. But nothing could be further from the truth. There are several different categories & sub-categories of vegetarians as diverse as the reasons for going Vegetarian in the first place. Despite the fact that a vegetarian is generally defined as someone who doesn’t eat meat or fish, it is still possible that someone who is vegetarian could conceivably eat dairy products such as milk, eggs and cheese. A “lacto ovo vegetarian” doesn’t eat meat, fish or poultry, but does consume eggs, milk or cheese. A “lacto vegetarian” consumes milk and cheese products, but doesn’t consume eggs. A “Vegan” is someone who doesn’t consume any animal product or by-product, including dairy food. They eat only vegetables, fruits, nuts, grains and legumes. They also don’t use animal products, such as leather. Vegans also don’t use white sugar because it’s often processed with a substance derived from animal bones that whitens the sugar. ]]> There are other categories within the vegetarian community, “fruitarians” for example, eat only fruit. Their rationale is that fruits, including fruits such as tomatoes, are self-perpetuating and don’t need to be planted to create the food source. They consider it a way of eating that’s most in balance and harmony with the earth, the most natural. All of the above will eat cooked vegetables, fruits and legumes. There is also a growing movement towards “raw foods veganism” which is the practice of eating only raw or living foods. This is based on the assumption that cooking food processes most of the nutrients out of it, and to get all the nutritional value, vitamins and amino acids from food, it’s best consumed raw, or juiced.If cooked at all, it should only be cooked to slightly over 100 degrees, so the nutrients are still retained. Authors Footnote: The more restrictive you become with your diet, however, the more educated you need to become to ensure your body is getting all the necessary Nutrition ,proteins and vitamins that you need to maintain good health, especially muscle and heart health.

 

What Can I Compost ?

What Can I Compost?:

Perhaps you are new to gardening and you have heard talk about compost. If you aren’t sure What to Compost, the answer is you can compost anything that used to be alive, animal or vegetable. Some things do make better compost than others, and some things can give you trouble that you might not have thought of before.

What Can I Compost - Easy Green Living

My first experience with compost came at my grand parent’s house when I was very young. They had a large bowl they would fill with uneaten portions of food, and food casings such as eggshells and banana peels. When the bowl became filled, grandpa would take it to an empty 55 gallon oil drum he had in his back yard, dump it, and put a lid over it. When spring came, he would empty the drum into where he wanted his garden. By this time, the contents of the drum looked like wet dirt.

There is a problem with composting uneaten food. If you don’t have a place to put it that can’t be sealed, don’t do it. The stench can get pretty bad, and you will have an abundance of flies on your land. It will also attract rodents. A few raccoons might be okay, but rats and mice carry fleas that can transmit diseases to humans. If you want to re-cycle your old food intocompost you need to use a Compost Pail, these are really good & allow you to also turn the contents without getting your hands dirty!.So what can I compost?

Leaves

Another thing he would do would be to rake leaves, put them where his garden was going to be, and then burn them. I remember dinner at my grand parent’s house would always have huge great tasting green beans, succulent tomatoes, and fried zucchini. There are many ways to Compost Leaves.

Newspapers

Leaves make excellent compost, and they don’t have to be burned. Wet, decaying leaves fill the soil with nutrients that will help your garden grow. Old newspaper is also something that decays pretty rapidly, but I would stay away from the magazines. They decay at about the same rate, but the colored ink that is used for the pictures is not good for your soil.

Old Wood

Old wood can be used for compost, but it decays at a very slow rate. The ashes from burned wood make for good compost. In the years before electric furnaces, people often dumped the ashes from the fireplace into the garden.

If you live in a town where burning wood is against a local ordinance, you can still use it for compost if you grind it up into dust.

This is different than mulch. Mulch is good to put around your plants to keep the weeds down, but for faster decay sawdust is the best.

Sewage

A neighbor of ours who worked in a sewage treatment plant would bring home sludge to fill in his garden. The stench was horrendous, but it worked. He had one of the best gardens in town.

I know that people who work at a sewage plant are only a small number of the population, but a good many of us have pets. Pet droppings believe it or not make great compost!.

When animals and vegetables die, they decay into the ground and provide nutrients for vegetation that is eaten by animals. It is part of the circle of life, and starting a compost pile is a good way to remember this.

If you ever find yourself asking the question, “What can I compost,” take a look at a list that someone has compiled over the years of 163 things You Can Compost. It is worth checking out if you are serious about composting.

If you have any great tips about what can I compost, and would like to share them by posting on this site, please Contact Us by just clicking the link!.

What is Energy Efficiency?

What is energy efficiency? Reducing energy demand requirements without reducing the end benefits. As an example it is possible to reduce your home lighting energy use by 95%! but still receive the same light output using LED’s.

But energy efficiency also can include passive energy efficiency, so when you insulate your home well you can heat your home to the same standard or comfort level but use substantially less energy.

To stop or at least slow down climate change one of the main changes we can all make is to always think of energy efficiency. So for example when we purchase a new car, demand better efficiency every time, this forces car makers to concentrate their efforts on building the most fuel efficient cars.

If we think of energy efficiency in all aspects of our lives, not only will we save money in fuel bills but the air will be cleaner to breathe. High efficiency gas water heaters use less fossil fuel, therefore creating less pollution but still providing the same amount of heat output.

Remember also that when we build a new home we are most likely creating a building that is going to be used for 50+ years, so why not make it the very best efficiency we can. By insulating our homes well, using good quality appliances that will last a long time, this will ensure we create great energy efficient homes that will last for generations.

LED Christmas Tree Lights

This holiday period make sure to buy energy efficient LED lights for your garden or Christmas Tree, these last for upto 100,000 hours and use 95% less energy.

Vegan Diet

Many people think that the vegan diet, and being a vegan, is exactly the same as being a vegetarian. Although this is partly correct, as veganism is actually another step up the rungs of the vegetarian ladder. Veganism is a whole lifestyle with diets that aim to exclude any use of animals and/or animal products for all food, clothes, shoes, make up, or any other purpose. In relation to diet, it is sometimes also termed the ‘pure’ or ‘strict’ vegetarian diet.

The majority of vegetarians usually start their vegetarian diet for either health purposes or for some form of disagreement with the way animals are treated to produce food and products, or to take part in protesting against animal rights.

Vegan Diet Plan

For those who have decided to that step further with veganism however, it is a totally different and new way of life beyond being vegetarian. Vegans also usually follow a philosophy that humans should be looking after the environment in which we are fortunate to live, not harming it or depleting resources for their own luxury needs.

Many vegans also believe that all animals are very much entitled to animal rights in some form. This belief is often the biggest reason why someone decides to become a vegan. Some vegans believe that consumerism has been given a higher priority that the ethical use of animals and that many products are the result of widespread cruelty to animals.

Some food processing methods that use animals as part of that processing, including wines and sugar refinement, are avoided by vegans. Even more so, products using animal testing are completely eliminated from the vegan lifestyle. Particularly some brands of make-up and skin care products, some medicines, and products made from animals such as wool, leather, and fur.

While a usual vegetarian diet will still include food such as eggs and dairy products, the vegan diet will not. Vegans would find adequate substitutes for these types of animal food products, usually looking into alternatives that can be produced from plants. A good example of this can be seen where soy milk is the substitute for dairy or cow’s milk.

Vegans do eat a lot of plant products such as; fruits, vegetables, grains, beans, and legumes. In fact, many of the key ingredients of vegans’ diets are the same as the most popular Mediterranean diet; they merely replace the meat & fish with vegan alternatives.

Although it’s not really necessary to try to make food appear as if it is meat, vegans are able to make dishes similar to meat dishes by using animal product substitutes. For example, products such as veggie burgers, mince, chicken nuggets, hot dogs, are all examples of products now available for vegans to buy ready made. For dairy product substitutes, vegans can now buy soy based yoghurts and cheeses. You will be surprised to find out that you can even get a vegan scrambled egg substitute made from tofu too. Debate continues as to whether silk and honey are alright for vegans to use.

It is possible to get a balanced and correct vegan diet if you want to be vegan, this is confirmed by nutritionists in that if vegans maintain a well planned out diet that includes all their nutritional needs their health will be maintained. However, if vegans do not plan their diet sufficiently enough, they run the risk of getting Vitamin B12, Vitamin D, calcium and iodine deficiencies. It is particularly important for vegans to be vigilant throughout pregnancies to ensure they get a well balanced diet.
