Wheat is great stuff!

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

You can make so many wonderful things with it:



A wheat straw house




Christmas ornaments




Kitty litter




animal bedding




a bag




a hat




wall board




pellets




place mats




wall paper

But one of the best ideas I saw at our local county fair: the local Wheat Growers Association made a wheat berry box (like a sandbox) for kids to play in. As the kids were playing in it occasionally you would hear one of the parents say: BUT DON'T EAT IT!
If they only knew how right they were. emoticon emoticon

    I wish we had more wheat fields in ND. Now so many other grains grown here too.

    When my cat developed allergies, I switched to SWheat litter. I got rid of it when ants showed up in my house and were carrying it out - yuck!!!

    LOL! This is great stuff!

Don't forget! Wheat makes a great place to house the spirit of your ancestors! (You'd have to Ukrainian to properly appreciate that....)

"...the master of the household who brings a sheaf of what called “did” or “didukh” (grandfather), a symbol of gathering of the clan, and greets his family with traditional salutations, expressing joy that God has favoured them with good health and general well-being. The sheaf is placed in the corner of the dining room, and remains there until New Year when it is taken out and burned."

    Wallboard? Really? I'm just now listening to JJ Virgin interviewing Mark Hyman and they're talking about gluten...

    I have the same reaction to bricks - good for building stuff, but not to eat

    I don't eat it, but I would love to be able to. I really miss big buttery yeast rolls. Unfortunately, wheat doesn't like me, not at all. It physically hurts to eat wheat, and I swell like I'm 5 months pregnant. I do wish I could eat it, but the pain is not worth the taste.

It answered a lot of questions for me.

    Too little time, too much to read/watch! I'll get to this one, though!

    Wow - that was really interesting! I currently check every few days with a ketostick but now I'm itching to get one of those monitors. Do you know if you can get them from a drug store or do they have to be ordered online? And anybody know the cost?

Thanks for posting!
