“Simplicity, Simplicity, Simplicity”: Thoreau’s Way of Life In “The Bean Field” chapter of Walden, Henry David Thoreau retells how he tilled the soil to farm his beans. The first year, Thoreau describes how he plants “about two acres and a half of light and sandy soil” (46). In this soil Thoreau plants beans, potatoes, corn, peas, and turnips. Rising long before the “sun had got above the shrub-oaks” (132) Thoreau levels the haughty weeds barefoot in the dew soaked soil. On this soil, Thoreau abstains from adding manure as he is “not .

Since it is Autumn season, Burt’s Bees created a new pumpkin spice chapstick favor to add to their collection. Although this ad that I saw is just another sponsored social media advertisement that everyone gets to see, I believe that Burt 's Bees did it right by creating a relevant to everyone spin on their new product and the advertisement that goes with it (pumpkin spice chapstick and pumpkin covered ad). Everyone is in love with the fall time in different ways and the festive pumpkin flavors that go with it, so seeing such advertisement made me happy and in need for one of those pumpkin chapsticks just because I simply love fall and the holidays it brings. In between of watching the new MTV love show called “Are you the One?” I came across
They also discovered that the seeds gave an insight into the spirit, culture and food of people who lived hundreds of years ago. That is why a group of students in Winnepeg decided they were going to grow the seeds. The seeds were from a type of squash, which was extinct.

My avocado tree has been growing for 8 months now, and I can’t wait until it hits its first year. Though this is a small victory, I can just imagine my avocados sitting on the shelves of the food pantry. Hopefully soon, I’ll be ready to reap all that I have
When they began farming, they grew corn (also known as maize), squash, beans, and pumpkins. The Anasazi also kept turkeys and used their feathers to make blankets and clothes, and they domesticated dogs. We know they started farming as early as 1 A.D., and became the first people to use irrigation in what we now know as America. Irrigation is a system where ditches are dug from a water source to carry the water to the plants, having them well watered, even in a very hot and dry climate. Art The Anasazi were well known for their excellence in pottery.
Every morning my dad would wake up earl to prepare us a delicious breakfast. Arepa is a Hispanic flatbread made from maize dough with cheese on top. One time my dad is in the kitchen making some for us and I asked him how did he learn to make arepas. He just told me "by watching my mom all the time when I was young." So I wanted to learn to make it so I can one day make arepas for my kids.
Not only did great grandmas’ cookies impact my life majorly, the sweet Amish culture gave me a whole new perspective on life! Here I was on vacation in La Plata, Maryland enjoying what I would call a flea market and what they call is, making a living. We pull up and I am filled with curiosity as to why there are horses with buggies attached to them everywhere, and why the people behind the stands were only wearing certain attire. Little did know it’s because of their culture. I would have never guessed all these woodened cutting boards were made from two hands that god had given these startling impressive people.
I found Pollan 's book to be very informative and enjoyable to read. I particularly liked the fact that I could associate Pollan’s cultural, political and economic views to the topics we covered in class. In order to complete this assignment, I selected Part 1 of the book "Industrial Food" because I was particularly captivated by the secrets of corn and also because I believed that this section sincerely disclosed the reality behind High-Fructose Corn Syrup (a major participant in the development of obesity). Not only that but, the fact that corn is found in almost every product in our pantry, it’s a little frightening. To begin with, Pollan mentions that it has become more profitable for companies to use high-fructose corn syrup in their soft
