"putting meat in its place" and a few other read-worthy articles

Usually I post recent read-worthy articles and timely websites on the right hand side of this page, but I wanted to more specifically highlight these few.

Most notably, Mark Bittman's "Putting Meat Back in Its Place," which ran in yesterday's New York Times, very simply and practically breaks down how to eat less meat. This article is the real reason for this post-- read it!!

Banking on Gardening: More and more people are turning to gardening as a way to save money in the wake of rising food and fuel prices, and a bumpy economy. While the impetus for many is to stave off financial struggle over food, the knowledge that more people are growing their own food brings me great joy inside! I only wish that this were more feasible for me in my dark yardless Brooklyn apartment. I keep those yearnings at bay with very frequent farmers' market visits, and I'm planning to can this year (the excitement builds)!

If you're like me and only just heard about the tomato issues plaguing the country right now (what? I've been out of the loop for a couple of days), here's a Times Topic: Tomatoes page to help catch you up on the most recent developments, what you should be concerned with, and what's being done about it.
