I have a lot to say on this topic, but not now. For the moment, I just want to point out that biotechnology has always been with us, is a gift of God, and we have only scratched the surface of what we can do. What we need to do is get our kids excited about it and it will be the next big thing. I’ve had a dream for many years of having a public biology lab, and stuff like this would be awesome.
Lately, I have started fermenting vegetables. The largest reason for this is that it is fun. It is like vegetable gardening, but what you are growing is microbes that preserve, flavor, and possibly nutritionally enhance your food. Rather than wait months for your garden to grow, your ferments will be ready in days or weeks. Rather than go outside and get dirty, you can do all of this inside whenever you feel like it. It doesn’t require watering or anything. It’s like magic.
Even better, fermenting is almost foolproof.
