I wrote Mother Earth News a letter to the editor a few months back and I see it’s hit the website:
They’re doing a great job covering the contamination of manure and compost by toxic herbicides.
UPDATE: I might as well drop the news now – I’ve been invited to start as a blogger with Mother Earth News. This is quite an honor for me since they are the premier source for all things homesteading. I’ve also read MEN for years and gotten plenty of ideas from the magazine and their website.
My first post for their blog should be going up later today – I’ll post a link when it’s there.
UPDATE II: My first blog for Mother Earth News is up:
i haven't seen an alligator for at least ten minutes either. hey wait, has anyone seen the cat?!? Hmmm…
That's great. I'm a Mother Earth News regular. I just learned about this blog from desert cat, so I'm looking forward to being a regular here too.
So…on the downside for you, does this mean that you can't sign up for any of the MEN sweepstakes…that there's one less person who can win the wood stove and/or the chicken coop that I'm lusting after? 🙂
Welcome – glad you're here.
And as for Mother Earth… hmm. Maybe I'll do the gov't/private sector revolving door approach. Step down for a day, win the sweepstakes, then jump back in…
(Of course, I've already got a chicken coop and I don't really need a stove. Maybe that'd just be greedy.)
