Re: Indoor CO2

Every once in a while I see a report that plants are competing with us rather than the traditional theory about them complementing our exhalations by breathing our CO2. Really? That sounds pretty far-fetched, but I'd be open to hearing more. I'd certainly like to know before I turn my house into a ...

A quick search turned up this...

Its results suggest that certain common indoor plants may ...

Re: Indoor CO2

A few months ago I read about this and realized I had been suffocating my kid at night by closing their door tightly and winterizing their room. Whoops. I've been cracking the door at night and I could swear he's more lucid now and has an easier time focusing. The things we do to our kids.  :-\ I've...

Re: Iron is Toxic, Very Toxic -- Avoid At All Costs!

Why don't you get a mill and check it out for a while, and then let us know how you like it  :D I just have no need at the moment. My local Whole Foods sells local grist mill flour for ~$10 for a 5Lb bag (it's ~$8 at the mill). Amazon sells 5Lb bags of high quality wheat berries for ~$10. So, hard ...

Re: Permanent cookware

This is harder than I thought. That mill comparison blog didn't like the corona mill (says it's really for corn). sounds like if you get the wrong handmills they really are a lot of work (multiple passes to get decent flour for bread).

Re: Permanent cookware

Another link from my bookmarks (again, haven't had time to investigate) http://www.grainmillcomparison.com/ I imagine this makes for a good emergency food source. Always keep a big container of wheat berries on hand and you have a cheap and fresh long term food source assuming you have access to a w...

Re: Permanent cookware

And looks like the "nugget" mill (another product in the same site) offers stones with settings adjustments (coarse to fine).

Again, no idea if these are any good or not. Sounds interesting though. But a lot more expensive than the corona.

Re: Permanent cookware

The other thread convinced me... Any recommendations on a grain mill?  Ideally, it would be human-powered (not electric), but still be capable of producing 4 cups of flour in a reasonable amount of time. I haven't done the research yet, so I cannot vouch for anything. But, I was going to eventually...

Re: Iron is Toxic, Very Toxic -- Avoid At All Costs!

Well, 2 cups of flour is a pound of flour, from online conversions. Huh? What kind of lead-weighted flour are you using? The average cup of flour is 4.25oz. Therefore, 2 cups of flour would be a half -pound of flour. 1 Pound = 16 ounces. Anyway my point was to not conflate the use of flour vs the a...
