Joining the CSA last month has transformed our kitchen into a palace of happiness.
…Well, maybe not such a huge transformation. But we’re definitely cooking differently.
For instance, Greg now keeps stock bags: one contains the unwanted bits from vegetables (stems and ends and skins), another contains the bones (etc.) from chickens that we eat. These live in the freezer until we have need of a stock, and then are boiled into bliss to produce either veggie or chicken stock.
Having very little waste as a result of cooking greens or chard is pretty damn awesome.

There’s a bit of everything in week’s internet cruising:
- The higher-education bubble (continued): Students are drowning in debt – How's this for ridiculous: student-loan debt now surpasses credit-card debt.
- Literary Agent – Traditional Versus Self-Publishing – Ted … – Amanda Hocking and Barry Eisler on their strategies of traditional- and self-publishing.
- 10 Tips on Growing Your Garden Without Growing Your Expenses – Given my gardening bug this year, this is a handy read.
- On Digital Identity, Technology Dependents, and Death – Much like the comprehensive backup solution I linked to so long ago, this is a great guide for getting started with digital identity management. 1Password is also great on Windows.
- 45 of The Most Popular and Awesome Sci-Fi Wallpapers – I'll confess a weakness for gorgeous backgrounds like these, if I can get them large enough for my desktop screens.
- Open ID Is A Nightmare – A powerfully-written article on a small company deciding to not support Open ID anymore. Cross-provider compatibility, downtime, API changes, the addition of multiple steps, etc. He raises very valid points that have me rethinking the time investment of implementing Open ID solutions in products.
Deliciously antagonistic comments there, too. Jeff Atwood chimes in.
- Editorial: Last Guardian’s Girl Trouble – IGN – The maker of a new "Shadow of the Colossus"-like game doesn't think young girls can be acrobatic or wear pants, evidently.
- For All Humans to Play – I'd never heard of Sophie Holden before–she's an independent game developer–but this interview takes an good look at her development processes and opinions on marketing small games.

I’ve been all over The Incidental Economist lately, and it’s really hard not to link to every one of their posts that I can make heads or tails of. They’re really prolific by my standards, though, which means it’s a struggle to keep their posts from falling off the 30-day cut-off in Google Reader.
- Simply put: Marginal cost/benefit – "You’ll consume as much health care as you think worth it for the transaction price (your copayment if you’re insured). The lower the price, the more you’ll consume. You’ll keep using health services until the marginal benefit falls below the price you pay."
I'm not sure I agree that people will keep gobbling and gobbling up health care, but I definitely understand that people will use more if it's cheaper.
- Student drowning in debt needs professional help – I think my brain stopped working when I saw the mortgage payment of $1900 a month. That's… what? A $350,000 house? Fer skerious. That’s a whole lotta house. Keep reading >>
