Have Your Own Calcotada Fiesta At Home

Catalunya or Catalonia is a semi-autonomous province in Eastern Spain. Bounded by the Mediterranean Sea, the Pyrenees and the Els Ports mountain ranges. The region is very distinct from the rest of Spain with its own language and customs. As with everyone else in Spain the Catalan people enjoy a good fiesta particularly when food is involved. Even the tiniest villages will arrange a fiesta to show off their cherry harvest or quality of olive oil.

In the Tarragona region the Calotada is one of the first fiestas of spring. To an outsider the theme may seem a trifle odd and maybe not worthy of a fiesta. But once you’ve tried the succulent roasted flesh of a calot dipped in sun warmed piquant sauce, trust me you’ll be converted.

The area of Valls is particularly well known for the Calotada. Here, along with the towers of teetering humans (always topped off with a small child of course) you can enjoy eating and drinking among beautiful surroundings of the Medieval city.

Organic Vegetable Gardening A Few Words About Tomatoes

Everybody loves tomatoes. And the taste best when picked from the vine, walked to the butcher block, sliced, and put on the homemade bread with lettuce, bacon, and mayonnaise. My mouth is watering at the thought. First we have to grow the tomato.

Tomatoes come in a numerous varieties, heirloom and hybrid. I just like to eat them. From grape sized and red to gigantic and purple, you can get tomatoes in a virtually unlimited array of colors and sizes. They all grow between three to four feet for you determinate varieties and seven to fifteen feet for your indeterminate varieties. All tomatoes need twenty-four to thirty six inches of space to spread out. If you use deep beds, you can plant a bit closer together and train the vines vertically. The majority of the roots are in the top eight inches of the soil with some fibrous spreading roots going four plus feet down. They like their soil to have a pH of 6 to 7.

Tomatoes love eight or more hours of full sun per day. They cannot tolerate frost and should be started indoors and transplanted to your garden after the last chance of frost. Where I live in Tennessee, that is tax day here in the US, April 15. Did I follow my own advice? Of course not! I planted early and had to cover my tomatoes because we had a frost. Some stakes and old packing blankets over the tomatoes brought them through just fine. They look great and are moving toward the sandwich as I write.

Deforestation – Effects On Environment And Society

Human beings have always been and possibly will be dependent on forests to some extent. Trees were there form of homes, their natural world, their mine for food and their shelter from opponents. Forests are greatly significant to man, and other living creatures as well; and unfortunately, it is one of the largest threats that the world is facing today.

Mainly, the problems we have are due to massive deforestation; and at the present moment, we are realistically experiencing the detrimental effects of deforestation and suffering from them at the same time.

Deforestation can be characterized by the great scale depletion of forests. Deforestation transpires when forests are transformed to barren lands and areas for industrialization, for source of human consumption, and other explanations without adequate restoration of the forests. It is rather the undying damage to the vast land areas on earth; and thus should be stopped and halted before the untoward effects become totally inevitable.
