I've been thinking and thinking about the age of living foods.
Wouldn't it be awful if old and unsproutable grains and seeds were responsible for some ailments, or overweight?
I've heard about the treatments of seeds for 'commercial' grades.
I've also heard that quinoa and amaranth are both quite dominent seeds, overcoming many weeds, etc...one being a cool-weather crop and the other being a warm-weather crop...as peas, for example, are a cool-weather crop, and will give another crop in the fall.
One year I will scatter seeds near a stream, and see what I get.
I have five-pound boxes of 'Sonnet' cherries, the pits of which I will scatter near streams and close to the aquifer so that, in about five or six years folks can feed on them.
You know, Johnny Cherry-pit.
I went to vaccuum under my living-room furniture one day, and there were a pile of cherry pits behind the sofa.
I couldn't figure out how they missed the wall, which was unmarked.
Someone pointed out, a long time ago, that someday you'll wish that your young one was outside bouncing a tennis ball against the house.
Luckily, I thought of that...and didn't yell, "Knock it off."
